Waiting - 20 Monologues at The Southville Centre (2006)

“Innovative, original, magical” – Venue 2006

The title of this all-day event, staged by Show Of Strength Theatre Company, might give visions of bearded scribblers earnestly reading out their stuff from a lectern. Wrong. The 20 pieces were, in fact, short solo playlets, each only a few minutes long, performed by seven actors in nine different spaces in the building.
