Headspace Theatre Monologues - Radical Thinking Inside a Box
Published by Smith & Kraus
Headspace Theatre is a small space for big ideas
The 27 monologues in this collection demonstrate the ingenuity and insight of American playwrights
Just as “desperate times call for desperate measures,” so too do these strange times demand a theatre strange enough to evoke the weirdness of life in this pandemic
Enter Headspace Theatre, a locked-down art form that offers the audience only a character’s head encased in a box
With nothing but a face, a voice, and a story to work with the 27 Monologues in the book offer dozens of curious answers to these perplexing questions:
Why is that character’s head in a box?
How did it get there?
Can it think it’s way out?
These 27 Headspace Theatre Monologues feature the humorous, the absurd, and the political
And they have proven to be the perfect form for Zoom performances
But they can of course be performed on more traditional stages
Also included are acting tips from Jon Jory and a critical perspective on the historical relevance of Headspace Theatre
Not for the timid or weak of heart
But then what exciting theatre is?
