SELF PORTRAITS: 3 MONOLOGUES

written by Lucy A Daniels

directed by Caroline FitzGerald

 

There will be a Rehearsed Reading of Self Portraits at Jermyn Street Theatre on Tuesday 24th February at 1:00pm. it will last approximately 45 minutes.

 

Self Portraits is a new play. It is a series of 3 intimate monologues by 3 different West London characters, considering how they portray themselves to the world, as well as who they really are.

 

Terence (read by Ewart James Walters): a painter and bus conductor (no. 9 bus) has been working on his self portrait since the 1970’s. Can he now complete it?

Rosa (read by Penelope Dimond): a life model, well accustomed to being drawn, but not at all used to wielding a pencil herself.

Aleksey (read by Olegar Fedoro): a Russian actor in London who has played a thousand people professionally. But who is he in real life?

 

Lucy A Daniels has translated plays an poetry from the Russian (Chekhov, Bulgakov, Arbuzov, Tsvetaeva, Blok…). This is her first original work for the stage.

 

Caroline FitzGerald was Resident Director and Assistant Artistic Director at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin in the early 1990s where she specialised in new work by well known and emerging playwrights, including Sebastian Barry, Jennifer Johnston, Dermot Bolger, Fergus Linehan, Ulick O’Connor. 
More recently, she has directed plays by Frank McGuinness, Tom Murphy, Edward Albee, Yazmina Reza and many others.

 

The idea of the Rehearsed reading is to get feed-back on the pieces, so as to decide where to take them next. Or perhaps to find a producer?
