“I was completely stopped in my tracks and entertained by the random yet concisely accurate subconscious free flow I would find so difficult to convey myself, yet it spoke almost the exact thoughts that go around in my head!”
Laurie Bowles, Film Maker
Caught one of these amazing monologues on the wireless this morning! Very fine indeed!”
Jules Kay, Broadcaster
“A master of the monologue in action”
Alyson Hallett, poet
Having completed the first series run on London’s Resonance FM, My Day Off -the 15 minute series of poetry monologues by Mac Dunlop – joins Cornwall’s the Source Fm while the second series is in production.
“I always find it difficult to describe what a monologue is to be or not to be. My last series Unspoken Words had a simple soundbyte, it was “about a single word, and what a single word could inspire”, a series of humourous monologues that were held together by a single tenuous thread, a different single word each week. UW ran for forty 15 minute episodes on Cornwall’s The Source FM, and London’s Resonance FM between 2010 and 2012.”
Now, having lost you in terms of my ‘elevator pitch’ time frame, I want to introduce you to what My Day Off is not:
1) it is not another Unspoken Word series.
2) it is not linear narrative (it accommodates the capacity of a single voice to trample all over sense and sensibility).
3) it is not real, it is a rapid fire approach to containing what happens next within a 15 minute linear time frame.
4) it is not unfunny.
5) I refer my honourable member to the answer I gave moments ago*.
