Every year, Smith and Kraus publish a volume of the best ten-minute plays of the previous year, and I’m pleased to say that for the first time, one of my own plays is included: “Too, Too Solid Flesh,” recent winner of the Peter Honnegar Prize for Best Short Play at the Firehouse Center for the Arts in Newburyport, MA. Further, a monologue from the play (which, in all honestly, is not a monologue at all but rather a series of one character’s lines pulled from the play, with the other characters’ lines excised) is in the S&K volume of the best women’s stage monologues from 2015. Not bad for a play that could well have more uses of the f-word than all of my other plays combined! Seriously, it’s hideously profane. But funny.
So, if you want to produce a three-person play that takes a look at how writers create their own realities, or if you need a hilarious (but, once again, horribly swear-filled) monologue for your next audition, you know where to turn!
