THE PROP MASTER - Graffiti - Danny

Author Rob Gruen
New York, New York

PLAY DESCRIPTION:

A play within a play, THE PROP MASTER  literally becomes a theatrical laboratory, as a contemporary theater staff attempts to mount a production that explores Freud's cocaine problem in 20th-century Vienna that oddly mirrors the national heroin epidemic within its own ranks.

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: Danny is the son of the Prop Master for a theatrical production about Sigmund Freud called COQUERO. In desperate need of drug money, Danny and his fence Wilson plan to steal the elaborate replica of Sigmund Freud’s study — the set for the play which is in the middle of its run. Danny has to convince Wilson, whom he has never met, of the terms of the deal.

Subject Matter: Addiction, Heroin, Withdrawal, Being High, Robbery, Graffiti, Desperation, Sigmund Freud, Theatre, Persuasion

Supplemental Information: On June 13, 2017, Theater for the New City, New York, held a staged reading of THE PROP MASTER, which was overwhelmingly received. An Equity attendee wrote, “The Prop Master is not just funny, it's tragic and philosophical, and it says something real in a very cool way.”
