BEDTIME STORIES - Jackson

Austin, Texas

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: Jackson, a counselor at a summer camp, has just heard a vicious rumor involving him that has been circulating throughout the camp. In this scene he complains to his roommate, Chuck, while they smoke a joint, preparing for the staff kickball game. 

Subject Matter: Coming of Age, Gender, Masculinity, Trust, Betrayal, Insecurity

Note from Playwright: This monologue, as the whole show BEDTIME STORIES, is a piece that plays with language and insecurity. "Big" "Little" these are all words that Jackson feels deeply, and it's up to the actor to decide if he's speaking about the situation or his own manhood.

Supplemental Information: The full script BEDTIME STORIES is not available yet.
