Orflong and Zip are the lone dwellers on the planet Gavanuuy. They hunt Kalakazula worms with their sucknas (plungers) and play Gerfle, an infinite game. When Drop appears, they are fascinated by this English speaking creature and the games she brings. The closer Orflong and Zip get to Drop, the more estranged they become from each other until they can no longer communicate. Drop presents a unique challenge as it is scripted in the Gavanuuyian language spoken by Orflong and Zip.

Drop was performed on April 25, 1996 at the Morrison Center for the Performing Arts, Stage II in Boise, Idaho under the direction of the playwright. The lights were designed by Karena Nielson; the original music was by Carolyn Bevington and Dano Madden. The cast was as follows:

This is a terrific show to explore physical and vocal expression since the beginning of the play is in an entirely made up alien language.  Lots of room for awesome design ideas as well.
