Eight compelling monologues offering a state-of-the-nation group portrait for the stage.

Edinburgh Fringe First Award 2008
Carol Tambor ‘Best of Edinburgh’ Award

From Millie, the jolly-hockey-sticks prostitute who mourns the loss of the good old British class system, to Miles, a 7/7 survivor, and Danny, an ex-squaddie who makes friends in morgues, Eight looks at what has happened to a generation that has grown up in a world where everything has become acceptable.

In its original performances, each audience voted for four of the eight monologues that they wished to see, resulting in a different line-up at every performance. A ninth unperformed monologue is included in this edition.

The monologues are ideal for performance by student and amateur groups; any number and any combination can be performed. They also provide excellent opportunities for actors looking for audition material.

‘a huge writing talent… a truly impressive and exciting hour of theatre, you’re blown away’ Scotsman
