Event (Edmonton): Chris Craddock Book Launch for Public Speaking and Other Plays! – NeWest Press

Public-Speaking-and-other-playsJoin NeWest Press as we celebrate the release of Chris Craddock’s second play collection, PUBLIC SPEAKING AND OTHER PLAYS!

This free event will take place on Monday April 7th in Edmonton at Tavern on Whyte (10507 82nd Ave) from 7-9 PM. Come on down for food, drinks and good times as we celebrate three classic plays.


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.
