Desdemona, a lonely actress cast as a fairy in A Midsummer Night's Dream, invites a man she hasn't seen in seven years to a performance. Surprised and a little frightened when he actually shows up, she suggests that they go for coffee. She takes her car; he follows in his. As she leads him on an eerie journey through a labyrinth of dark country roads, she grows more and more afraid of what will happen when they stop. This unusual monologue about loneliness, fear and enchantment is a fine showcase for a young actress.
