REMEMBER WHEN? SCENES FROM THE MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE (Co-author)

The fun and sometimes painful process of growing up is examined with wit and pathos in this collection of 52 monologues. Most are short and easy to perform, designed with the young actor in mind. A wide variety of topics are covered including fitting in, the child inside, friendship, being scared, dreaming, the opposite sex, and how people change. Some monologues naturally group together and can be performed together for an ensemble feel such as being in a family and firsts and lasts. (Available at Eldridge)
