“Monster” – a brand new play, getting workshopped at New Dramatists

I’m in the midst of a two week workshop of “Monster”, at New Dramatists, as part of the Playtime Developmental Studio. I’m collaborating on the workshop with the director Portia Krieger. We’ll probably be doing a public showing next thursday the 19th at 3pm – check the New Dramatists site for further details next tuesday.   Here’s a brief description of this very new piece:

Monster”, very loosely inspired by “Beowulf” tells the story of Brenda, who, having had her daughter taken away by the state, comes back to small town she grew up in. The town, dominated now by a big box store, is unrecognizable to her. She gets a job at the store, which is infested with a monster, which is eating goods and employees. Brenda will take on the monster, and in doing so will have to reckon with her own monstrosity.

Set photos from the Playco production. I never posted a link to these – some were shot by Fitz Patton for Chance Magazine, others taken by the wonderful set designer of the production, Andrew Boyce. See them here.
