    Structure is the backbone of every strong monologue, and ONE IS THE ROAD proves the point! Poignant, powerful and engaging in every sense, this monodrama is a superb example of expertise in capturing an audience and delivering a whole lot of "Pow"!

    MARK LOEWENSTERN’s play, “One is the Road”, is one of the best short play monologues I have read on New Play Exchange. The device used to tell the story is poetic in my mind. Such a winning play! BRAVO!

    Sometimes you read a piece where the structure is so perfectly the play and vice versa that you understand what all the talks about structure are all about. Riveting and stunning.
