How to Write an Autobiographical Monologue
We all have stories only we can tell. These are precious, and should be shared. They help us understand our history and our lives. Keir Cutler, who has written ten original monologues, many of them autobiographical, will share his insights and vast knowledge. Presented by the Atwater Writers Exhibition.
This writing activity takes place following Keir’s performance of his most recent monologue, Magnificence, named Best English Text at the 2019 Montreal Fringe Festival, for the Library’s Lunchtime Series, 12:30 to 1:30 pm — make an afternoon of it!
Keir Cutler has performed his solo shows across Canada, the US, and UK since 1999. He is best known for his award-winning Teaching Shakespeare and his adaptation of Mark Twain’s Is Shakespeare Dead? He has been called “formidably delightful,” (Off-Off Broadway Review), and “an assured and mesmerizing monologist” (Maisonneuve Magazine). Keir was born in Montreal and graduated from McGill University, the National Theatre School of Canada (playwriting), and Wayne State University (MA, PhD).
This event is taking place on the traditional and unceded territory of the Kanien’keha:ka.
