The Story

It’s been a year since Eve died, and while her body was revived, her spirit is damaged. She feels like she’s lost herself and struggles to present a normal façade. Her life before death seems like another’s memory. Her husband, son, her acclaimed writing career… all vague somehow.

Eve’s family gives her a beautiful journal, hoping it will help her creativity spark. She intended to record her recovery. As soon as she starts to write, however, the alien world at the edge of her dreams begins to pulse through and compels her to write the transmissions down.

Soon, these visions consume her. Her life disintegrates. Is Eve losing her mind or wallowing in Truth, evolving to post-human?

Critical Acclaim for F00lishPe0ple:

“The production fuses the haunting, authentic dreamworlds of David Lynch and the theatrical philosophies of Antonin Artaud… to create a vivid and disturbing reality to powerfully draw in the audience.”—Nick Dawson, Filmmaker Magazine

“There are a few times when you are sitting in a place and you have to think ‘This is an iconic moment—something really important is happening here.'”—Dr. Christina Oakley Harrington, Author

The Author

Maryann Rada, author of Remembrance: Pleiadian Messages in Preparation for Contact (Vol. 1 of the Logbooks of the League of Light)

As a healer and writer, Maryann serves as a clear and open conduit to the divine, a noted seer, mentor, teacher, interdimensional liaison, and wayshower. She’s embodied healing practices ancient and modern to bring focus on raising individual and planetary consciousness. After facing an abrupt shift in life circumstances, she began to chronicle her journey through awakening. This experience is fictionalized in the film Lightships, which sources largely from her book, Remembrance.
