Many of these monologues were first performed as part of Blind City at the Bondi Pavilion in Sydney in 2002 and at the Darlinghurst Theatre as part of the Sydney Festival in 2003. The production was directed by Kym Weatherley and performed by Sophie Gregg, Jonny Pasvolsky, Graeme Rhodes and Sarah Smuts-Kennedy. Pictured is the production of Love Sucks at the Goethe Institute, Chennai, India in 2016, directed by Anantharaman Karthik and performed by Saadiya Ali and Anantharaman Karthik.
This collection of over 20 monologues – many drawn from Alex’s full length play Blind City – are perfect vehicles for actors to show off their range. The monologues are excellent audition pieces or work brilliantly as a stand-alone performance, either individually or combined. (Actors are welcome to edit the monologues to any desired length.)
