Kevin is a 10-year-old boy with an active imagination who has returned to the hospital for chemotherapy to treat his leukemia

Kevin is convinced that leukemia doesn't actually exist but is rather a plot by the "Powers That Be" to control all children

Melissa is a mature 10-year-old girl who also is a chemotherapy patient. She very meticulously takes all medicines, studies all the available information, and follows all of the doctor's advice

When Kevin and Melissa meet, Kevin tries to convince Melissa that the doctors are the evil "Powers That Be"

Melissa is skeptical, but Kevin encourages her to use her imagination and join him on his quest to discover who is behind the plot

In a series of adventures: Kevin's imagination first transforms a pharmacy into the evil laboratory of Dr. StrangeGlove; Kevin believes that the "strange language" of medical terms the doctor and nurse use prove they are aliens; Kevin and Melissa explore a distant planet where the aliens are using children as guinea pigs for testing cosmetics; they imagine the nurse and doctor as vampires planning to suck all their blood. When Melissa tries to convince him that the doctors want to help, Kevin refuses to listen

Melissa then gets her test results showing she is still in remission

But Kevin has discovered that his cancer has come back

He is very upset and is now certain that the cancer is a government plot

Melissa persuades the doctor and nurse to join Kevin's fantasy and convince Kevin that they are secret agents fighting for him, not against him

By the end of the play, Kevin allows the doctors to help him in his fight against his true enemy - the cancer

Flexible staging - runs about 60 minutes
