WINNER! Outstanding Overall evening of an Entire Evening of One Acts/Paired Productions
On what could be the last night of her life, Mata Hari, exotic dancer, sex goddess, and accused spy, is visited in her prison cell by her long abandoned husband. She hopes he is there to save her, but instead he attacks her, accusing her of various sorts of betrayal. In her attempts to defend herself from his accusations, and from the accusation of treason for which she has been condemned to death, we begin to see the complex series of choices that have brought her to this desperate place. She is beautiful, funny, seductive, a bit wicked, and totally captivating. And her husband, for all his anger at her, is still very much under her spell. What he asks of her is to dance for him, her famous Dance of the Seven Veils. 
Mata Hari premiered at the Planet Theatre Connections Theatre Festival produced by Nylon Fusion Theatre Company in June 2013 under the direction of Ivette Dumeng.
