Cath is an orphan, sent to a girls' boarding school in the country, a big old house where she is very lonely until two of the other girls, Alicia and Belle, creep into her room one night, blow on her face to awaken her, and initiate her into a dangerous midnight game of Mistress and Slave. But over time the dares gradually become more dangerous, more erotic, more cruel, more sinister.

Cath is an orphan, sent to a girls' boarding school in the country, a big old house where she is very lonely until two of the other girls, Alicia and Belle, creep into her room one night, blow on her face to awaken her, and initiate her into a dangerous midnight game of Mistress and Slave. They deal out cards, and the one who gets the Queen of Spades is the Mistress, the Queen of Hearts the Slave, and the third girl is the Witness. The Mistress gets to demand one action of the Slave, and it can be anything. The Slave must obey. Once a month, at full moon, they play this game. At first Cath is happy, to have friends and be part of the game, which is exciting. But over time the dares gradually become more dangerous, more erotic, more cruel, more sinister. Eerie, complex and frightening. An excellent Halloween play. First produced at Shadowbox Cabaret in Columbus and by the Grey Wing Stage Company in New York. In Banana Man & Other Plays.
First produced in September of 2001 at Shadowbox Cabaret in Columbus, Ohio and the Grey Wing Stage Company in New York.
