More “Vandalism” at The Royal Court Theatre

I received word today from The Royal Court Theatre that one of my monologues that had been chosen for their online GRIT Project earlier this year has now been selected to be performed at the theatre as part of an evening of works that will represent the culmination of the GRIT Project.

The monologue (an abridged version of “A Small Act of Vandalism”) will be performed alongside other short pieces as a rehearsed reading by the Royal Court Front of House staff. The night, hosted by a compere, begins at 7.30pm on Tuesday, June 2nd and will be held in the Royal Court Bar & Kitchen.

Monologue to be Published in New Anthology

Image
I was recently informed that a monologue from my play “Suburban Redux” has been selected for inclusion in a new monologue collection to be published by Pioneer Drama Service, Inc.

The new monologue anthology, “Audition Monologues For Young Men 2016,” is scheduled to be published in the spring of 2016 and will be edited by Gerald Lee Ratliff. This will mark the fourth collection of Mr. Ratliff’s that I have had the honor of having my work included in, and my first with Pioneer Drama Service. The monologue in question for this particular book comes from the rather shy, awkward character of Tristram.

Pioneer Drama Service is an Englewood, Colorado-based publisher of plays and musicals, and is one of the largest play publishers in the United States.
