As of July 23rd, WAIT is now 75% complete meaning that we are on track to be done writing by early August. This will give us around two months to continue editing and make final changes to the set before it is able to be played starting on September 28th.

UPDATE: As of August 9th, 96% of WAIT is now written. We remain on schedule for September 28th.
