Face to Face Festival – Lost Theatre

Face2Face

I’m very excited (and nervous!) to announce that I will be performing three of my monologue plays at the Lost Theatre on 9th and 12th July as part of their Face To Face Festival of Solo Theatre.

Two of the pieces, which will be performed together on the 9th, are part of a suite of monologue plays called Crossing Lines – a title inspired by the theme of this year’s National Stalking Awareness Day.

On the phone, at your home, at work or in the street – they wait.

In the shadows, online, or right at your door.

Where is the line between flattery and fear, attraction and obsession,

persistence and pursuance?

 

Crossing Lines is a suite of monologue plays that take us inside the mind of stalkers and their victims. Two of these plays, Smash & Grab and Lock Up Your Sons, will be performed at the Lost Theatre on 9th July as part of the Face to Face Festival of Solo Theatre.

“She laughs. She laughs the way she only does for me.”

 

Civil, another short play by the same author about the impact of civil war on family members overseas, will be performed on the 12th July.

It is not about politic, it is economic…the gun looks the same, the violence is the same.”

 

All of the plays are written and performed by Deborah Klayman.
