Overview

It's been three years since the last harvest, and the lepers are preparing once again to wage war on the mannequins for spare parts-prosthetic limbs they need to rebuild themselves. Jaundice (a female mannequin) and Quall (a male leper)
have fallen in love in the midst of this war, forcing them to confront and redefine the nature of loyalty and betrayal. An absurd and tragicomic allegory,
Lepers and Mannequins explores how love, identity, class, religion and desire all divide people not only from each other, but from themselves. As the lepers struggle to maintain their humanity (striving at all costs to conquer both the mannequins and their disease), they could ultimately lose it. This is the mannequin metaphor, and warns of a startling fate for the lepers-if they can stay in one piece long enough to put themselves back together...
