“In the Cellar of My Heart”
A woman’s dead son walks into her room as she takes an over dose of pills. Will she slip off the mortal coil and be seduced by pills and booze, or will she keep the promise she made to her son when he was born. A dramatic solo performance by Canadian American artist Diane Spodarek, (Drunk Monologues – Fringe 2006), directed by Diane Spodarek.
“Stimulating! Humorous! Provocative! .... Spodarek’s The Drunk Monologues is told with skill ... tautly written and dryly humorous prose ... performed with a winning openness and honesty.” Laurie Atkinson, The Dominion Post.
