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.

Pretty Fire
By Charlayne Woodard

WHEN: Thursday, July 19, 2018 at 8:00 pm

The lyrical, lifting words of Charlayne Woodard weave stories of two young sisters in the small world of Albany, New York; of Ku Klux Klan riders burning a cross-the ironic "pretty fire" of the title-in the hilltop black town of Rosignol Hill, Georgia; of three generations of family love, struggle and triumph. An authentic, mesmerizing experience of contemporary African-American life. Filled with earthy humor, it takes readers on a universal journey through a world in which the family bond is as strong as steel. 

Featuring: Nicole Callender


The Absolute Brightness of  Leonard Pelkey
By James Lecesne 

WHEN: Thursday, July 26, 2018 at 8:00 pm

One actor portrays every character in a small Jersey Shore town as he unravels the story of Leonard Pelkey, a tenaciously optimistic and flamboyant fourteen-year-old boy who goes missing. A luminous force of nature whose magic is only truly felt once he is gone, Leonard becomes an unexpected inspiration as the town's citizens question how they live, who they love, and what they leave behind.

"An affecting and entertaining testament to the beauty of a world in which difference is celebrated rather than denigrated." - Los Angeles Times
