I am all for events like this. I think it is so important to recognize all that have had an impact on theatre, not matter how small or long ago. I especially like the format of this event, where the monologue is performed, then discussed, then made available for anyone who wants to read it online. I think that is a great way, not only to present a piece of theatre, but to start real and meaningful discussions about it as well. I think making events and work like this open and accessible to all who want to join is a great way to both educate people about things of which they might not be aware and also entertain them in a new way that perhaps they have not yet experienced. I also think that by holding events like this, it will also contribute to diversity awareness and the importance of having members from all communities represented in the theatre.
