Notes From Other Worlds: A Series of Dramatic Monologues
by Susan Gray
11 characters in 11 dramatic puzzles.
Well, more if you count the hiveminds.
A Series of Voices in a Science Fiction Age - a Collection of Notes from Other Worlds.
Dealing with such futuristic themes as post-humanism, mass interstellar transit, physical invulnerability and a crime scene of hiveminds, this book delves into the ever-changing idea of the character, the human, the individual and the state in our present and future. These monologues come without age and gender guides for the actor and/or director to add their own twist to the performances. Each piece includes some crib notes for the situation the character is facing, along with some stage directions.
Susan Gray is a Playwright, Performer and Artistic Director of the Theatre Company Stars or Mars in London.
