Seven 11.2005  | Open: 03/31/05 Close: 04/18/05
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 seven plays for this year's production are:
Paris by Anuvab Pal
An 11-minute conversation without consequence on a lazy Paris afternoon

S.A.M.O.S.A. by Debargo Sanyal
Students Ho, Cho and Mo get down and dirty with student club politics and deli snacks

Salesgirl by Celena Cipriaso
Two strangers at different points in their romantic relationship examine the nature of love

Beckoning Cat by J.P. Chan
Waiting for the lucky numbers at a convenience store can prove to be an unlucky business

Intimate with the Locals by Rachael Astarte Piccone
In malaria pill-induced paranoia, Evie, an insomniac writer, recounts her recent heartbreak in Bombay to Mohit, the store clerk who truly deserves her heart.

Color Me Desi by Rishi Chowdhary
A liquor-run to the convenience store before the big desi party uncovers there are more shades of brown than there are colors to Holi

SOONDERELLA: A fairy tale of a different colour
A new musical by Samrat Chakrabarti and Sanjiv Jhaveri
After last year's widely successful A Very Desi Christmas, a pop musical adaptation of Scrooge, SOONDERELLA is another 11-minute musical set in the convenience store
