I was a big success in Reader’s Theatre today. We did solo monologues (isn’t that a little redundant?) I did a monologue from Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart. Bruce (the one in the play who’s supposed to be devastatingly handsome) is telling Ned that his lover has died of AIDS.
I got very positive comments from Susan Stathus (our teacher): “You have excellent timing.”
Somebody else: “He’s not afraid of silence.”
“I almost cried.”
“I got so into it I nearly forgot I was watching a monologue.”
I wrote about finding this monologue in an earlier post.
