In the summer of 2014, DRT presented a series of solo works as readings at MONDO, the cultural gathering place in downtown Summit. The series was received with such enthusiasm, that since then we return to MONDO every summer with our Monologues@MONDO series.

The Night Watcher
Simultaneously a best friend, mentor, psychologist, and surrogate mother to the many young people who call her "Auntie," Charlayne Woodard is childless only by biological standards. Told with penetrating grace, candor and wit, THE NIGHT WATCHER is the story of a woman who chooses not to have children-only to be pulled into the real-life struggles of kids of all ages, races and backgrounds.

The Only Thing Worse You Could Have Told Me
Billed as a "whirlwind tour of the gay American landscape," this one-man show juxtaposes ten predominantly gay characters in fourteen vignettes. Moving, funny and eye-opening, THE ONLY THING WORSE... turns inside out the experiences and perceptions surrounding gayness in modern America. The characters question, contradict and especially challenge one another's credo of what "being gay" really means.
"...you certainly don't have to be gay to appreciate Butler's people ... recognizable life as lived to straight or gay alike." - The New York Post
