WORDS IN EDGEWAYS

A set of monologue of the "Talking Heads" genre

ARTICLES OF FAITH
Life decisions can take us down various possible paths,
sometimes extremely different. This Monologue, in two
parts explores one man, a vicar, faced with
particular life experiences that could have turned him
or strengthened him. The two parts are named
His Wonders to Perform and Blaze of Glory.
The monologue examines not only an individual's
reaction to life experiences but the testing of
his religious belief and faith in a real world.

SPLITTING HAIRS.
A ladies hairdresser makes discoveries about himself
and his partner that lead to an unsettling climax.
It examines strength and weakness of character,
prejudice, integrity and self-interest.

IMPURE AS THE DRIVEN
Maureen, married to a schoolteacher who she sees
as driven by his total dedication to his school and his
pupils, sees herself as a neglected wife.
Her search for fulfilment leads her into deep waters.
Just as it seems that she has found some answers,
devastating events shatter the very foundations
of her existence.
A Delicate Balance

A monologue telling the Easter story through the eyes of Pontius Pilate. Other than the Bible, it is based on various sources both modern and contemporary. It introduces elements of Pilate’s private life, deduced from old records, found in a monastery in Bruges and is now in the Vatican library. These ancient records written in Latin are believed to be the letters of Claudia Procula, the wife of Pontius Pilate, and detail the events of this period. They help to paint a picture of the dilemma faced by Pontius Pilate.
