This multi-cultural, expanded version of Ex Miss Copper Queen on a Set of Pills is set in Chicago in 1991. Based on personal interviews with homeless women, the play ran for three months in the Chameleon Theatre.
"A heartbreaking lyric poem...but the playwright also recognizes the humor in the human situation and highlights the nobility that can survive all kinds of blows to the human spirit. The action transpires over the course of one early morning as we meet: The Copper Queen a down on her luck prostitute, B.A. and Crissie two enterprising prospectors/garbage pickers, Mychelle and Himilce one drug addict who wants to get clean and one who doesn't, Valrave a super intense, burned out sex kitten and Sunny a pregnant woman who shouts out sermons which shame and threatens the existing order of power the culprit who undermines the human spirit.
