Praise for Eight Monologues from Americana West
Playwright Red Shuttleworth's Eight Monologues from Americana West brings voice to the long forgotten and overlooked men and women of the West. Shuttleworth's American West is akin to James Joyce's Ireland: a land where the common folk never forget the humor of the human condition while living, loving, and dying.
-- Stuart Rosebrook, Editor, True West magazine
Western dreams encounter reality and disappointment, but never defeat in these eight intense, often heartbreaking monologues from acclaimed playwright Red Shuttleworth. His Americana West is as innovative as it's moving.
-- David Morrell, author of Rambo: First Blood
Poet, playwright, promethean prodigy, and hardscrabble prophet Red Shuttleworth captures our hard native land in a volcano of words. The unbroken characters who tell their tales in Eight Monologues from Americana West never lie about the terrifying tragedies and truth they confront every day to survive their proud but desperate lives.
-- Will Bagley, 2019 Owen Wister Award, Western Writers Hall of Fame Inductee, author of River Fever and So Rugged and Mountainous
