Here's a little retroactive posting for ya. Better hideously late than never, right?
I've had the stories behind the Mundane pieces floating around in my head since I came up with the idea for the show almost a year ago; Garry and I were talking about having laminated cards next to each one explaining what was going on. That didn't pan out for opening night, but I still want to do it. So here we are.
Since the early 70's, these enormous animals have been raiding dockyards and airports, stealing storage crates, jet liners and commercial aircraft. They are only seen in twos and threes, usually on overcast days near the mountains. Although extensive searches have been conducted, no one knows where they nest or what they do with the objects they steal, although there is a great deal of speculation.
It is theorized that they use these materials as vessels to house and protect their young, and may have evolved in a harsher environment where conditions made it essential to provide shelter from solar radiation during infancy. No convincing evidence yet found of a nymph stage to support this theory.
