Smith & Kraus to publish two monologues by Martha Patterson

Theatre publishers Smith & Kraus will publish two of my monologues in 222 More Comedy Monologues in August 2016.

SYNOPSIS of THE BIG HAT:  A bar in Kansas City.  MARNIE is in her 20s.  She talks to the audience and holds a shot glass full of whisky.  She is talking about how she always wanted to be like her sexy, long-lost aunt.

SYNOPSIS of A PLACE TO CRASH:  Ron, in his 30s-40s, visits a woman he hasn’t seen in a while and thinks he can win her over.  With chatter about the sandblasted masks he's made of his own face, and the inexpensive bean sprouts he grows for food in the trunk of his car, he tries unsuccessfully to seduce her.
