Smoke and Heroes

Performed by Matt Sauer

These monologues were created during the Stay at Home order in March and April 2020. Each week, three playwrights were given an inspiration word on Sunday night. They had until Wednesday at noon to write a new monologue. The monologue was cast as soon as the script was completed and rehearsals begin. Actors then had just a few days to learn and memorize their monologue before performing. We are proud to present the complete collection of LIVING ROOM MONOLOGUES below.
