Award-winning actor/playwright Chris Craddock explodes the conventions of the theatrical monologue in this collection of three hilarious, poignant, feverishly inventive and (sometimes literally) electric solo stage pieces.

In Public Speaking, an amoral lifestyle guru finds his message of guilt-free self-interest tested when his sex-addicted daughter is kidnapped by a pair of dangerous thugs. In Porn Star, a mousy small-town librarian is titillated to learn that she has unwittingly become an internet sensation thanks to an X-rated viral video starring her and her ex-boyfriend (much to the horror of her mother, a family-values right-wing politician). And in the astonishing Moving Along, Craddock ricochets wildly through the story of his own life--through childhood traumas, adolescent tragedies, adult triumphs, and frequent philosophical tangents.

CHRIS CRADDOCK is an Edmonton-based Actor/Producer/Writer. He has been recognized in Canada with four Sterling Awards, two Dora Mavor Moore Awards and multiple AMPIA award nominations for his film and TV work. His previous play collection for teens, Naked at School, won an Alberta Book Award.
