Apollo's Defiance

    A comic monologue that captures through the character of Apollo toxic masculinity. Makes you think about the Apollonian men of entertainment and politics, of art and history -- the celebrated, esteemed men that our culture mythologizes as genuises or god-like, free from censor or judgement -- who claim they're innocent because Truth is supposedly on their side. Evil, transgressions, incivility, acts of violence -- much of the time is now unforgivable, regardless of accomplishments and virtues. This monologue showcases a repeated bullshit defense we hear on media's stage and off stage. Check it out.
