Straight and To The Point: 50 Really Short Plays Tonight in SF!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

One thing that I hate about myself is that I always talk too much, and go on too long about things I care about. It’s consistently been a problem throughout my life — it’s what always got me sent to the principals office, what always makes that awkward moment the pinnacle point of the night, what always leaves me wishing I was born tongueless and unable to sign. And if there is a thing I don’t like, it’s plays. They’re is always so much long, drawn out drama that always leaves me wondering: “And?”
Cafe Royale is hosting “50 Really Really Short Plays” tonight — a whirlwind tour of acting work that is all meat and no filler. What I really wonder is how they are planning on doing the monologues. I picture lots of outbursts emotion in record breaking time.The Royale’s beer and wine list are small and the prices match, so if you’re looking for something to do without breaking the bank, it’s looking like you should keep it short and sweet tonight.

Monica Miller - The Intern

Ms. Miller was born in San Diego, CA to one lesbian mother and one
righteous, cheap father. Currently, she is enrolled at San Francisco
State University for a B.A. in Journalism and the approximate
completion date is around 2015. She has worked for many papers in the
Bay Area, including the Oakland Tribune and the San Mateo Country
Times and is currently the city editor at one of the most
underappreciated publications in SF, the Golden Gate [X]press. Though
she may find bargains aplenty, it only stems from the necessity of
never landing an actual job and working for hacks [like Stuart.] With
intelligence, style, poise, bite, and honesty, she will rip your heart
out; but not before writing some awesome, poignant shit. This year,
she is looking forward to bigger and better things such as: trying to
get paid for a gig, actually finding a date that isn't a loser or
fucking crazy, not calling her parents when hungover and bringing you
the best of the 7x7 everyday of the week. [By the way, I wasn't
kidding about the date thing; if you love food, booze and shoegaze,
get at me.]
