When the Mo(n)ths (Dis)Appeared by Lydja Uta Szatkowska is a starkly visceral, immersive, dynamic journey that reads like experimental, interactive poetic play. In three acts you witness the protagonist brave through a somber experience, trudging deep and even deeper into an abysmal forest where moons are moths and banshees wail and there are monsters in plain sight and death is a persistent ghost looming over you. But you yourself are no passive bystander, you possess the agency to choose.”
