M.I.A, the play

M.I.A is about unit 1998 and their struggle for survival in a rapidly changing world. They are trying to advance but constant threats of hostile takeovers, increasing competition, the fear of being taken out, and fighting amongst each other make it all the more difficult for them to survive. One of the members from unit 1998 decides to abandon the unit. He meets a soldier from unit 2012, something doesn't seem right about this unit, and he quickly questions if they are friend or foe. Will unit 1998 complete their mission, or, will they turn on each other leaving them prey to destruction?

Picture it the near distant future jobs are scarce and extremely hard to come by. The need to compete for these few positions has caused war among the people. Even your closest friend could be your enemy.
