Desipina & Company's seven.11.2005 is a series of seven 11-minute plays set in the American convenience store, a dominant American consumer presence from coast to coast and the ideal symbol for the mini-productions which challenge and redefine existing stereotypes of immigrant convenience store employees while exploring the diversity of South Asian nd Asian Pacific American cultural experiences. .

The plays include:
