Jenna, a young woman, sits on her bed in her nightgown and shares with us her childhood fear that Captain Hook's Crocodile was living under her bed, waiting to eat her. Obsessed with the Croc, she offers us a demented but convincingly detailed theory of the Crocodile's psychology, why it was obsessed with eating Captain Hook's other hand, and what it means to love, and in the course of this very funny analysis we begin to put together Jenna's own darker story, concerning her father's murder, her mother's treachery, and Tinker Bell's drinking of the poison. A funny, moving and chilling piece for a young actress. Jenna also appears in Nigro's Iphigenia,Clytemnestra and Electra.

Published in Machiavelli & Other Plays.
