In this collection of plays, Walter Wykes creates a series of modern myths, tapping into something in the strata of the subconscious, through ritualism and rich, poetic language. The worlds he creates are brand new and hilarious, yet each contains an ancient horror we all know and cannot escape and have never been able to hang one definitive word on. "The Profession" follows the experiences of a naïve young man exposed to the inner workings of a secret society of assassins.

When he flees to escape a mysterious group known only as "The Tall Men," she finds it impossible to go back to her old way of life.
