BETWEEN SILENCES by S J Henschel

£6.00

24 performance monologues written for women performers, but encompassing universal themes and emotions, the short pieces explore everything including a widow’s brief connection with a dog she meets in the park; a mother’s letter to the daughter who just made her a grandmother; a middle-aged woman who feels self-conscious about entering the dating scene after her divorce. We hear from a Holocaust survivor and an abuse survivor. We hear from the poets and the pessimists, the outsiders and the optimists. And so much more.

All pieces can be licensed for performance individually.
