Monologue Monday: Allegra in Pretty Theft by Adam Szymkowicz

Hello everyone and welcome back to Monologue Monday.

This week we bring you Allegra in Pretty Theft by Adam Szymkowicz. In the playwriting community I think Mr. Szymkowicz is most famous for his blog where he has interviewed more than 1,000 playwrights.

The play’s synopsis is as follows (from backstage.com):

“Pretty Theft is a play about ballerinas, boxes and the dangers of beauty. After losing her father, Allegra falls under the wing of bad girl Suzy, only to find an unexpected friendship with Joe, an autistic savant. When things take a violent turn, Allegra and Suzy escape cross country and befriend Marco, a mysterious thief who claims he cannot be caught.”

For reviews of the 2009 production, please check here.
