About the Author
Timothy Mooney has adapted seventeen of Molière's plays into English verse, seen in the United States and around the world, with many of them published by Playscripts, Inc. Tim's latest adaptation, a rhymed version of Goldoni's "Servant of Two Masters" premiered at the Annapolis Shakespeare Festival in the Spring of 2015. His one-man plays, "Molière than Thou," "Lot o' Shakespeare," and "Shakespeare's Histories: Ten Epic Plays at a Breakneck Pace!" are turning a new generation on to Molière and Shakespeare. Mooney's "The Greatest Speech of All Time" recreates actual historical speeches ranging from Socrates to Martin Luther King, Jr. Previously, Tim taught acting at Northern Illinois University, and published his own newsletter, "The Script Review." As Artistic Director of the Stage Two Theatre, Tim produced nearly fifty plays in five years. Tim inaugurated the TMRT Press in 2011 with his long-awaited acting text, "Acting at the Speed of Life; Conquering Theatrical Style," followed by "The Big Book of Molière Monologues." In 2013, TMRT Press began releasing parts of Tim's one-man catalogue in book form, beginning with "Molière Than Thou" and "Criteria, a One-Man Comic Sci-Fi Thriller!" Last year's release, "Shakespeare's Histories: Ten Epic Plays at a Breakneck Pace!" initiated Tim's new line... "Breakneck Shakespeare," which found its fulfillment in his newest one-man show: "Breakneck Hamlet."
