Perform (Volume Five) includes:
“Bookstore Madness” by Varun Rajan
In his send-up on the state of booksellers, comedian and author, Varun Rajan, introduces us to a myriad of off-the-wall characters, who are, at times, the stereotypes of those found stocking the shelves and assisting customers at retail bookstores everywhere. A fast-paced, hysterical situation comedy!
“The United States of Me” by Kendra Sparks
In today’s explosive environment, teenagers have reason to be concerned for their future. In her stream-of-conscience poetic rant, Kendra Sparks delves into the minds of today’s teenagers and asks some hard questions. Powerful!
“Killing Spiders” by Sandy Maranto
In her heartwarming, yet, at times, humorous first-person confessional, Sandy Maranto introduces us to Matthew, a young man, who doesn’t understand the complexities behind his mother’s mental illness. Captivating and honest!
“My Son, Daniel” by Manuel Montez
Mass shootings have become a staple in the American news cycle; however, few tragedies have shocked our country more than the Pulse nightclub shooting that occurred on June 12, 2016. In his first-person confessional, Manuel Montez gives us a fictional account of that tragic day as seen through the eyes of a father; and while few would argue that there is an undeniable bond between a father and his son, what happens when that son doesn’t trust the father enough to confide in him the deep dark secret of his true identity? A tour de force for the mature, talented, male performer!
“Which Hunt?” by Nicki Stanton
It has been said that those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it. Considering the alarming rates of bullying in schools and teen suicide, maybe our society today isn’t as evolved as we sometimes think it is. The spelling of the title is correct—which of the witch hunts is the real tragedy? The Salem Witch Trials we should have learned from or the tragic witch hunts that are happening today? A powerful Duo Interpretation for two girls, one of which is adept at portraying multiple characters!
