If we’re trying to write now for the theatre, are we writing for what theatre is now or sometime in the (hopefully not too distant) future? Why can’t we do both? Right now, we have screens and people on screens, so let’s write for them.
Ed’s short plays have been staged throughout the NY metropolitan area and around the country. His monologues are contained in the anthologies of Mother/Daughter Monologues: MidLife Catharsis and Urgent Maturity published by the International Centre for Women Playwrights. His monologue from Secret Dreamers was included in Best Women’s Monologues of 2019 published by Smith & Krauss. His anthology Short Plays for Long Lives is published by Blue Moon Publishing.
