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.
