  • COMIN' ALIVE AT 35

    Lermond does a fine job with details to capture a sense of place and an event for her character's glorious, goddess-like transformation. Another winning monologue in a series of monologues with empowered female characters.

    An uplifting monologue, transformative with its soaring poetry. Beautiful imagery that'll be in your head a for a long time. This would an amazing play for designers - costume, lightning, media.

    If only some men understood subtext! Hoping for the best for this woman who's waited -- only a year. The description of the scene for the first kiss...during a snowstorm is the stuff of theatre. a great picture--and funny. Maybe we can have these theatrical moments in life if only we're spontaneous and commit to being crazy for the sake of fun and maybe love.

    What kind of theatre should we produce in a world on the brink of ecological disaster? This is a play that demands attention even if it means doing so with a playful twist. We need more plays like this to wake us up.

    Keyes is one of my favorite monologuists that crafts atmospheric monologues with a creepiness that gets under the skin. Check out The Runner and then read the other monologues.

    Gallant's characters like this double-D bus driver are fully-realized and singular like characters from Talking Heads. Read any one of her monologues and you want to read them all and wait for the next one.
  • Follow the Fireflies (monologue)
    18 Jan. 2022
    St. Croix has given us a place called the Grove with its own rules and mythology, a place in between life and the afterlife, a limbo world of trees and fireflies that is so enchanting. I would love to read more about The Grove in a longer work. Beautiful writing, image by image.
  • Down to a Science (Monologue)

    A commanding voice, a universal one, using scientific metaphors while addressing inequality and oppression during our pandemic time that really makes you think and agree with her. Hopeful, optimistic - lovely writing.

    The temperature in this play hilariously reaches a boiling point in respects to conflict. Captures that ugly phenomenon of toxic customers that want it their way. The barista character is a winning one for an actor!
  • Erase (a monologue)

    Funny, relatable and beautiful. It reminds you of the power of a child's vision and imagination, and the impact that it can have on your life.
