Fourth annual series exploring the alternately funny and poignant aspects of immigrant life in America via seven eleven-minute plays and musicals--all set within the confines of a 7-11 convenience store.

The plays include:

Bombay Screams by Rehana Mirza. An unemployed actor from Broadway's "Bombay Dreams" toils at the 7-11...until an up-and-coming female playwright comes in and sweeps him off his feet. Is it true love or just a messy Slushee?

Who Killed Mr. Naidu First? by Samrat Chakrabarti and Sanjiv Jhaveri. With 3 suspects and a heinous crime, a musical "whodunnit" that will send you singing and screaming from the convenience store!

Homecoming by Celena Cipriaso. A young woman stumbles into a convenience store to find her past.

The Old New World by J.P. Chan. In the year 2106, superpowers fight for their right to claim the Jewel of Ancient America.

Undone by Elizabeth Emmons. Two girls stop for supplies on a run away trip to Mexico to escape an arranged marriage.

Jaffna Mangoes by Vishakan Jeyakumar. Race relations in a convenience store in Sunnyside Queens makes life juicier than the juiciest of mangos.

Kung Fu Hustle by Jackson Loo. A Chinese-American teen, convinced that learning Kung Fu should be easy for him since its part of his heritage, struggles to master the art in a hurry to impress a pretty martial arts instructor.
