In this powerfully seductive and mysterious monologue, Laura, a beautiful woman in her thirties, sits in a bar full of mirrors and speaks to a man who has bought her a drink about the dangers of getting involved with strangers, and the deadly mating habits of the praying mantis, who devours her lover's head after copulation. What has this poor guy gotten himself into? Works on its own, but also along with two companion pieces, Telepathy and Uncertainty, both included in this volume, Mysterium & Other Plays.
First produced in New York City by Inertia Productions in September 2010.
