Monologues / 11f / Bare Stage / This extraordinary collection of dramatic monologues by one of America's foremost women of letters rivals Talking With in dramatic intensity, language and sheer weirdness. The evening begins and ends with the title poem, a haunting evocation of woman on the edge of madness and vulnerability. Also included are Little Blood Button; Wife of; Wealthy Lady; The Boy; The Orange; Good Morning, Good Afternoon; Darling, I'm Telling You (Angel Eyes); Nuclear Holocaust; Slow Motion and Pregnant. There is humor here, but mostly the monologues are gripping portraits of the pathetic, the strange, and the horrifying.
