This collection of seven shorter plays and monologues includes Mata Hari, about the last night of the beautiful and mysterious exotic dancer before her execution as a spy; Marina, a monologue play about the great Russian poet Marina Tsvetayeva; Queens, about a young woman obsessed with the complex and tragic sex lives of the face cards in her deck of playing cards; The Wood Where Things Have No Names, in which a young woman tries to deal with what she now understands as the betrayal inherent in all love relationships; Pentecost, in which Egg Rooks, who lives at the dump, tracks down the preacher Jack Pentecost in an abandoned windmill on a rainy night to confront him with the consequences of his latest seduction of a young girl; Lamp Post, in which a troubled young woman bangs on a young man's door in the middle of the night, convinced that he is the Crisis Center, and tells him a harrowing story about her ability to turn out street lamps and kill peacocks with her thoughts; and Zombie Radio, in which a young woman who hears voices attempts to communicate her desperate situation to her tragically dense boyfriend. 
Mata Hari and Marina premiered at the Planet Theatre Connections Theatre Festival produced by Nylon Fusion Theatre Company in June 2013 under the direction of Ivette Dumeng.
