The New Orleans Monologues

Third Thursday Art Walk

A series of narratives based upon fictional characters both before and after the hurricane hit, this performance brings out the voices of New Orleans residents with layers of diverse characters. In a recent interview with Todd Mathews, Bell exudes a passion to portray a side of the hurricane that is rarely told. "They were everybody. They were you, me, everybody. That's what we don't know. We just see these poor, bedraggled people in front of the Superdome like they don't have any story."

The performance is coupled with a book drive, "BOOKS for the BIG EASY," in collaboration with the UWT Circle K student organization, to help restock the shelves of the New Orleans Public Library (NOLA), which suffered critical losses due to Hurricane Katrina. You can help by bringing donations either to the blue and green donation boxes around campus or to the performance on May 17th. The library is asking for any and all hardcover and paperback books for people of all ages. The staff will assess which titles will be designated for its collections. The rest will be distributed to destitute families or sold for library fund-raising purposes.
