Eight - Contemporary Monologues

1 Male, 1 Female

Ella Hickson Price: $12.99

Edinburgh Fringe First Award 2008
Carol Tambor 'Best of Edinburgh' Award

Eight compelling monologues offering "a portrait of a generation" ...

From Millie, the jolly-hockey-sticks prostitute who mourns the loss of the good old British class system, to Miles, a 7/7 survivor, and Danny, an ex-squaddie who makes friends in morgues, Eight looks at what has happened to a generation that has grown up in a world where everything has become acceptable

In its original performances, each audience voted for four of the eight monologues that they wished to see, resulting in a different line-up at every performance

A ninth unperformed monologue is included in this edition

The monologues are ideal for performance by student and amateur groups; any number and any combination can be performed

They also provide excellent opportunities for actors looking for audition material


"Ms. Hickson has already found her voice ó and itís a powerful one. She writes with a heightened sense of the rhythms and quirks of everyday speech and uses vivid, sensory details to create believable emotional states" ~ The New York Times

"Ella Hickson is a huge writing talent. You're blown away" ~ Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman

" ... beautifully lyrical" ~ Backstage

"Hickson's writing is superb" ~

"She has a gift for painting vivid character portraits. Her use of language has a sharp modern sensibility, both in the choice of language and the rhythms of the monologues. She can easily blend realistic description with incisive social commentary" ~ DC Theatre Scene
