SOME AMERICANS: SOME MONOLOGUES, VOLUME 2
FULL-LENGTH - 2 HRS
Everyone knows Wyndham as a master of the monologue.
-- Emily Hageman
The second volume of monologue showcases Americans working what many would consider a "bad" or "difficult" job. Through this common thread, the monologues examine social and class issues and a variety of subjects such as higher education, Islamophobia, disability, poverty, and ignorance in the Age of Trump.
