Additional Info

In this powerful long monologue, Ben, a man in his forties, wanders in London, in despair, trying to decide whether his life will continue or not, and confronts the eyes of Shakespeare staring at him from a tattered poster in Rose Alley. A challenging role for an actor at the height of his powers, and a melancholy love song to London. Published in Pendragon County Ghosts & Other Plays.
