The Murder Monologues
This article is from 2008.
There are few things more grating in the theatre than a bad American accent. This set of monologues sports not one but two, with both actors mangling the impact of their respective lines, veering from what initially sounds like a Russian twang to Alabama’s finest in a matter of moments. This is a shame as, if they had avoided that pitfall, some of the play’s more interesting ideas would have been more easily digested.
