The chastising character actor “Sheldon“ for PAC’s virtual reading of Alice Childress’s TROUBLE IN MIND.
Monroe is making his third appearance with PAC. Prior performances include Maria Marten or The Murder in the Red Barn and All’s Well That Ends Well. A Philadelphia based actor, he has appeared at numerous venues in the region. Some past productions include V to X, 12 Angry Men, The African Company Presents Richard III, Radio Golf and Our Town. Much love to the production team, my family, and those who support live theatre.
“Sheldon” is a veteran actor. An elderly, poorly educated black man, he embodies the Uncle Tom stereotype. He fawns on the director and reprimands Wiletta for disrupting rehearsals with her racial complaints. Though, Sheldon may be more than he appears; When the horrifying events of Sheldon’s childhood are revealed, is it enough to end the group’s fighting or heighten the tension?
