Literary Salon - MONOLOGUES
Phillips’ Mill kicks off the Salon series with an afternoon of dramatic monologues.
The Phillips’ Mill Community Association is inaugurating a new series of literary/artistic salons with an afternoon of dramatic monologues that will take place on Sunday November 20 at 2:00 PM. This is the start of a new venture for Phillips' Mill—an occasional series of salons that will provide creative inspiration and idea sharing for the local community. Based on the great salons of Paris, London, and New York in the 19th century, these events will bring together creative people from across the spectrum — writers, actors, artists, etc.—to share their ideas, talent, and some of their work in a friendly atmosphere.
To stimulate discussion each salon will have a performance or reading, followed by snacks and mingling (bring your own food and drinks, alcoholic or otherwise, if you desire!). The first salon will feature monologues by local actors. Anyone interested in signing up to do a 2-3 minute dramatic monologue, please sign up below. Future salons are planned for storytelling, fiction, poetry, and more. Mark November 20 on your calendars and come out for the start of a great new Phillips Mill tradition!
