I've sent out a call for monologues today to a variety of people, including actors, writers, poets, activists, and conscientous and conscious friends. I've also given the word to TAPT actors and personnel that the process begins for the new play. There is a December 15th deadline for submission of monologues by anyone who wants to have his/her remarks considered for the play. Naturally, not everyone's work can make the cut since the play will likely run 60 to 90 minutes. For those of you who don't know, The American Flag: 50 States of Being in America is our signature production which we do annually. This is our third year. Each year the play differs since we deal with current events and conditions in America.
So, if you want to be considered for this important (they're all important!) production, send your monologues (poems are monologues too) to Uly46@aol.com or call Rich at 732-822-4338 if you have any questions. This will be a powerful show with our reactions to the election and our concerns for the future. As always, TAPT is a blues there for the people. And there is much to be blue about. But, too, in keeping with the orgins of the blues in America's slavery foundation, TAPT turns pain into beauty. Be part of it, as a writer, actor, or audience... rpq
