The Wrap Up: Thoughts on the Fresh Ink 2011 National Studio

Having the critical distance now to […]

You’ll just have to trust that based on the advice I received, my monologue was brilliant.

Last week, I was observing at the Fresh Ink National Studio or Monologue Camp, as I like to call it. It’s hard not to feel pressure to write a monologue at Monologue Camp. Luckily, writers don’t generally travel in packs and so rarely have the means to corner you and challenge you to write something. […]

Caleb Lewis…On Monologues

There are few moments onstage more powerful than a good monologue. Done right it’s an act of virtuosity, a brief moment of stillness where everything else falls away save one startling single voice. Done badly it’s a twenty-minute drum solo – at best self-indulgent, at worst an interruption the audience endures waiting patiently for the […]
