Monologue seekers--there's some good stuff here, definitely check this one out!
What happens at a reunion? This tiopouc is well studied in film, theatre, teleivision and literature, but so much exists worth exploring in the convcept of looking back at one's life and seeing how it affected you that the subject is just as fresh as Kaufman & Hart's "Merrily We Roll Along", Sondheim's "Follies", "Is There Life After high School, "The Heidi Chronicles" and onward. In this case we have five bridesmaids who take turns escaping from the reception to one of the oppulent bedrooms upstairs. The five women have one thing in common: at one point they were all connected in some way to tracy, the bride whom we never see and whom is described as a Macy's day float in her dress. Their own dresses are typical hporrific dresses complete with hats. Each woman arrives with expectations, surprised to be a bridesmaid and very different from each other. By the end of the evening (the play runs just over two hours with an intermission) each of he women have a lot more in common than Tracy and have learned that perhaps they dpon't even have Tracy as a piece of unity. It is no accident that we never see her.
The dialogue- and monologues for you acting students - is fresh and honst; fast paced like an Aaron Sorkin or Joss Wheedon script, yet paces well.Read more ›

This is comedy, as well as a drama, but it is lighthearted and easy to digest. It's a great exploration of the phases of life, and the differences between people.Published 11 months ago by AeonDolphin
