Here's how the play is characterized: "In 7th Monarch, Miriam, a math prodigy who was on the fast track to becoming an astronaut, mysteriously dropped out of college and has been living in seclusion with her parents for the past 20 years. When Raina, a criminal investigator, knocks on her door seeking the parents, Miriam offers an inconceivable explanation for their disappearance. Jarring discoveries are soon revealed as the two women struggle to overcome their own personal tragedies."

7th Monarch has scenic design by Shoko Kambara, costume design by D.W. Withrow, lighting design by D.M. Wood and sound design by David Pinkard.
