About The Piece: "RSVP" takes place in Middle America in the early 1970’s. To be specific, this is the morning of Michael and Susan’s wedding. Michael is a nonfiction writer by trade, but on this morning – when he should be getting ready for the ceremony – he finds himself fixated on his first attempt at fiction. Writing what he knows, Michael creates the protagonist in his own image. However, when his fictional self is confronted with a familiar stranger from the future, the real Michael is unprepared to face some facts.
