Welcome to the 2020 Monologues on ZOOM
In the summer of 2014, DRT presented a series of solo works as readings at MONDO, the cultural gathering place in downtown Summit. The series was received with such enthusiasm, that since then we return to MONDO every summer with our Monologues@MONDO series.
In the summer of 2020, these Monologues will be presented on ZOOM! We look forward to gathering in person back at MONDO next year,
but for now, we'll see you on the screen!
Thursday Evenings at 8PM, July 9 ~ 30
All tickets are $15, and can be purchased by clicking the buttons below for each performance. If you are not a member of PayPal, you can click "Pay With Credit or Debit Card" to let you bypass creating or using a PayPal account.

Packing by Scott Bradley
A queer vagabond embarks on a five-decade odyssey of self-discovery and reinvention. From small-town Iowa to England, New York, and Chicago, Scott must navigate assaults, addictions, relationships, the plague years of the AIDS crisis, and the fight for marriage equality, in a quest to find where he belongs.

Dear Alien by Liz Duffy Adams
A shambolic, reclusive advice columnist known professionally as Dear Alien is under the gun. They have a deadline of yesterday for a collection of their columns; if they don’t turn it in they don’t get the advance, and they will be evicted from their apartment for non-payment of rent. In an attempt to create a passable manuscript, Dear Alien chooses seven unread letters at random and answers them, in a countdown to transcendent meaning or absolute despair.
Featuring: Scott McGowan

Natural Shocks: A One-Woman Play in a Tornado
by Lauren Gunderson
Based on Hamlet's "To be or not to be," NATURAL SHOCKS is a 65-minute, one-woman play that bursts to life when we meet a woman waiting out an imminent tornado in her basement. She overflows with quirks, stories, and a final secret that puts the reality of guns in America in your very lap. The play is part confessional, part stand up, and part reckoning.
Featuring: Harriett Trangucci

Me vs. My Subconcious by Rebecca Goldberg
In this solo show, a woman wakes up from a very strange dream and, realizing that her subconscious is telling her that she needs to make a big change, vows to quit her dead-end job that very same day. Soon, listening to her subconscious leads her on a series of misadventures, across the ocean, and into a whole new messy set of problems that may be more than she bargained for. Does her subconscious really have her best interests at heart?
