Street Kid – I don’t have a gun – yet!
Stargazer – We’re Alllll Miracles
The script was edited and the production directed by Denise Wellborne. I produced and performed in the play for live audiences. The play exposes us to victims and their victimizers. Each, has a story to tell:
A Nuclear Arms Salesman preparing to con third-world countries into buying deadly weapons – “they’ve seen the shopping malls and they want to go with us”!
A Collection Agent attempting to collect from a man who’s wife died and daughter committed suicide and who is bankrupt.
A Woman Libber who tells us of her journey from being a woman entering the business world and force to be more like a man to escape men.
Several Homeless Men (could be women) living on the outskirts of the city; a drunk who was thrown out of Madison Square Garden for the Democratic Convention, another man trying to figure out why it is what it is, and realizing it’s about chewing, and Stargazer who has connected with the stars,and realizes how we’re all miracles, and other characters as well.
Produced at Dowling College via my Professional Theater Company to standing ovations and rave reviews in the NY Times and The Suffolk County News (see below for excerpts, or homepage for PDF where you can read the full reviews.)
PNP can be done with props, or perhaps without them. The piece holds a lot of humor but the subject matter is serious and requires digging deep into the psyche and world of these very odd, but real human beings who have ended up in this garden.
I have other monologues that were not used in this piece that I may add – I am still considering if I want to do this or not.
“BRAVURA PERFORMANCE… Monteleone demonstrates a convincing range in evoking 10 different characters” (in ‘in Perfectly Norm-iLL People”.)
SUFFOLK COUNTY NEWS
‘in Perfectly Norm-iLL People,” his second solo, Monteleone slips with ease from one character to another with an original or hysterical line to draw you in.”
