FABULOUS MONSTERS - Play Your Guts Out - Slade

Author Diana Burbano
Long Beach, CA

PLAY DESCRIPTION

When punk rock exploded in L.A., Sally and Lou were there: feminists, Latinas, queens of noise. One went pop, one stayed punk, but sparks from their tumultuous friendship remain. Decades later, can they overcome old wounds, forgive each other, and rock as hard as they ever did?

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: Slade aka Sally Rodriguez is a hard living, seen it all punk rocker from the 70’s, alive, sober and cynical as hell. She's in her AA session, telling the heroin newbies her story.

Subject Matter: Latinx, Punk Rock, Women in Rock, Addiction, Aging, Women's Issues, Death

Note from Playwright: I have huge love and respect for the rockers who survived the 70's.
