  • Size Ten
    15 May. 2020
    If it's not size tens, it's often something else that someone tries to hide a lot of their lives. The self-acceptance is lovely in this great actor's turn.
  • Remember Me
    15 May. 2020
    A backwards look at a relationship that should have had no hope of surviving, except for the primal pull between a father and daughter. A life-long haunting that will be faced at last. Actresses will want to embrace this shivering piece by Glen Dickson.
  • McKorkindale's Teeths. From the Crofter's Tales series.
    15 May. 2020
    Lots of local, folk humor as we listen to McKorkindale explain his problems. A fun piece for a character actor.
  • RE-POLISHED

    Oh, in the voice of a teen, Lermond gives us Carrie, a dreamer. A little gem of truth.
  • TAKE AWAY (from the TAPAS COLLECTION)
    12 May. 2020
    The aging of a person can so easily fall to loneliness and self-pity. But when someone who really knows you, such as your daughter, comes to 'goose' you - a shared past and laugh and hope for a new future can alter your landscape better than anything else. A nice shared mother/daughter moment by Lermond.
  • HAPPY ENDING
    9 May. 2020
    A short, sweet intro to a life that we can imagine, will be happy. Could be a nice opening for an evening of dreamy fictional characters. Lovely to include in an evening of monologues.
  • MY WAY
    9 May. 2020
    I like this girl. I was with her from the first minute and finished this monologue with a big smile on my face! The first of many conflicts is won by the young teen. And it rings true as can be as written by Vivian Lermond.
  • CARNIVORE
    7 May. 2020
    For years we have seen the comic renderings of a man having to have watercress. Well, strap on your seatbelt for the female version. Yes, women get hungry, too! This is the delicious dish you have been waiting for. Enjoy!
  • MUM'S COOKING
    7 May. 2020
    I never thought to question my mother's cooking, but heaven knows my daughter has wondered about mine! This is a sweet memory of someone old enough to recognize that we all have different gifts. Recommended with a dry white wine. Or whiskey. : )
  • JUKEBOX

    What a great opener for an evening of monologues! Encapsulated is how the world stays the same, and it's the people who change - Though the stories are the same. I just love this piece: it sits you right down and you know where you are. A great piece for a festival.
