The Disposable Man is set in the near future in the USA after cataclysmic climate changes have reshaped America into separate states, including Texas-by-God, White USA, and the Floating Island of San Francisco.
Due to several factors, including the "man flu," no babies are being born. Leaders of White USA and Texas-by-God abolish birth control and remove all women's rights.
Many women relocate to the Floating Island, which the men are unable to invade. The women refuse to return until war, rape, and sexual slavery are ended and reproductive rights are returned to women.
This play focuses on the negotiations between the men and women.
