KC Wright premiered the role at the Secret Rose Theatre, Los Angeles 2012
DOING THE MATH premiered at The Secret Rose Theatre in Los Angeles as a selection in the MonoSlam Competition on January 29th, 2012. It was performed by KC Wright - who had only received the monologue two days earlier when another actor dropped out.
She performed beautifully, garnering much praise. The monologue won first prize in an audience vote.
The monologue - essentially a 5 minute one woman play for a teenager - takes place when a hyper-intelligent teenager - possibly with Asperger's Syndrome - has discovered through her mother's diary that her father may not be the man she thought.
Upcoming production! Doing the Math will have its UK premiere performed by Darren Forster, at The Big GIG Dig at the Ludlow Brewery, The Railway Shed, Station Drive, sy8 2pq Ludlow, UK on March 25th to raise awareness for Aspergers Syndrome; and then again at the Darwin Community Center ,
SY3 8JS on April 17th, World Autism Awareness Day, in a fundraiser for Autonomy - a support group for people with Asperger's Syndrome. Please support them, if you can!
