Literary Salon Series at Phillips’ Mill to feature dramatic monologues


The latest in the Phillips’ Mill Community Association’s Literary Salon series will take place Sunday, Nov. 19, at 2619 River Road, New Hope, with an afternoon of dramatic monologues starting at 3 p.m.

The event is open to anyone interested in performing a two-to-three-minute monologue and will also feature a selection of local actors performing monologues.

“We had very enthusiastic feedback from the audience when we did a monologue-themed salon last year so we decided to do it again,” said author John McDonnell, who runs the Literary Salon for the Mill.

As usual with the salons, audience discussion is encouraged. These salons are designed to bring creative people together to stimulate discussion, spark ideas, and network. The audience is welcome to bring food and drinks, and mingling is encouraged.

Anyone interested in attending or performing a two-to-three-minute dramatic monologue, should contact McDonnell at, or sign up at Admission is free, but a donation of $5 per person is appreciated.
