Monica: This Play Is Not About Monica Lewinsky is making its WORLD PREMIERE at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2019. After a brief preview at New York's 59E59 Theatre, (July 25-July 27) Monica will head to Greenside Venue's Forest Theater in Edinburgh and run August 2nd-August 17th as apart of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
The play follows a woman named Monica through a series of relationships. Jumping in time between the 80s and present day, we watch as Monica reckons with her past self and navigates the cost of intimacy in a culture that no longer values privacy. With a strong female protagonist at the helm, this play asks, how do we, personally and nationally, react to sex and scandal and how are men and women treated differently when the private becomes public?
