The latest instalment of *PAGE ONE: Actor Tristan D. Lalla reading p.39 of REPRISE by Mike Czuba.
**Page One is a video initiative by Dancing Monkey Laboratories to connect with actors, dancers, designers, and anyone else really, to read the first page of one of Mike Czuba’s plays (*or – a page from anywhere in the text, or the last page, or a collection of sections, eventually even the screenplays – it’s flexible – and contains many an ‘ish’ as is suggested by Nocturology‘s non-existent, yes strongly suggested, theatrical guidelines.)
