    Monologue written by Farzana Moon

    Stormy Nights

    I am Stormy Daniels. I had an affair with Donald Trump when Melania was pregnant. For the price of my silence not to disclose Trump’s adulterous affair I was offered one hundred and thirty thousand dollars which made me twice the victim of my own nightmares. The first time I was victim of my own guilt for being the lover of conscienceless Trump while Melania languished at home, heavy with child. My second time as a victim began with ‘Me Too’ movement when women stood up against the sexual harassment and I couldn’t say a word, since my silence was bought at a heavy price. During all those years between then and now, my sufferings never ended, for inside the cage of my own mind I remained a prisoner, shackled by chains of remorse, my heart wounded and bleeding. But now, the purple wound in my heart is abscessed and throbbing under the burden of too heavy a ransom for my silence. This silence within me is soaked in my blood and veins, my body revolting against the violence done to women by men rich, craven, egotistic and vainglorious who can buy carnal pleasures at their own whim or caprice. This ‘Me Too’ movement has awakened me to the realization of the hopeless, helpless pain of countless women who have been victims of sexual harassment for years, but their lips were sealed for the shame of being violated and for the brutal fact that even if they were to expose their naked shame to the world, no one would be willing to believe their tragic plight. Before Trump became president, and listening to his tapes, bragging about his salacious assaults on women, not only wounded my heart but bruised my mind afresh, wild and tortured. After Trump became president he kept insulting the women he had sexually assaulted, and the globe of shame within my mind became a searing, maddening mirror, reflecting a myriad of torments those innocent women suffered while Trump corrupted the Oval Office with his lies grand and fantastic. Exulting in his sexual assaults by denial and arrogance, even siding with Roy Moore the pedophile, backed by legion of Republicans to corrupt the very air of Senate Halls. This reek of corruption from White House nauseates me and I long to comfort my ‘Me Too’ sisters, but Trumpian Lawyers follow me like hounds, poised to stab me with the knife of their lies till I am bled to death. I beg you, please take your blood money back, even take my life, you liars lawyers vultures, but before that speak I will, telling the truth, my story, the tragic story of every women in the world who has suffered through the carnal desires of men-beast. Even if one man-beast Trump can be held accountable for his sins and removed from the Oval Office, world would become a better place.

    Two of my short plays for mature performers, Pen Pals and Senior Cruise, will be presented in staged readings by the Abbey Theater of Dublin (Ohio) on March 11th at 3:00 p.m. and March 12th at noon; the audience on March 12th will enjoy a buffet luncheon with the plays.

    Directed by Michael Schirtzinger, Theater Director at the Dublin Recreation and Parks Center, performers include Lloyd and Grace Casey, Daneen Axelrod, Jim Monsul, Rennie Beetham, Peggy Miller, Judy Fairchild-Rizor, Sharyn Shannon, and Elaine Coughlin.  The theatre is in the Recreation Center at 5600 Post Road in Dublin (the one in Ohio).  Admission is free.

    Pen Pals depicts a couple in their late 70s who’ve been pen pals since the second grade meeting in person for the first time.  They’re joined by classmates who’ve followed their communication via social media.  Senior Cruise follows a group of older folks on what turns out to be a very inexpensive cruise throughout the Caribbean and includes several people mourning loss of life partners, a censorious prude on the watch for any sort of lascivious behavior or appearances, a wise bar tender, and an entertainer constantly performing on the accordian with no discernable musical talent.

    On February 23 at 7 pm, HOWL! HAPPENING gallery & performance space is presenting a 2-hour version of ICWP member Melba LaRose's mega-project, "AFTER THE WALL."  This has been a project at least 5 years in the making and I would LOVE to see my sister-supporters there.

    The full-length 8-hour epic is booked for SynerFest in Valencia, Spain, in October.

    A multicultural, multidisciplinary, multidimensional, multimedia extravaganza, this play takes the audience on a wild ride through history, exploring the walls that divide us.  Its aim is to "start the conversation."

    You will laugh, you will cry, you will learn, you will be inspired -- you might even get up and dance!

    This is a benefit for the Actors Fund at $10/ ticket, with 100% of proceeds going to the Fund in support of East Village artists.  Seating limited.  Reservation info on FB link (Brownpapertickets).

    For complete information, visit:

    https://www.facebook.com/events/128954927919958/

    and/ or the project website at www.afterthewall.org.  The company website is:  www.nyartists.org.

    HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!

    "Flying Out Loud" is a monthly forum for readings of new plays, poetry, and fiction at Sunergos Coffee Shop, 2122 Preston, Louisville Kentucky.

    I was invited to write a play for the February gathering. Since it's shortly before Valentine Day, I wrote a comedy about two lovebirds -- real lovebirds -- after doing a lot of research about their habits. 

    Two terrific actors I've worked with before will portray the birds. The story: Neither Ruby nor Max has found “the one” yet, but their parents have arranged a meeting in hopes two will become a couple.

    Admission is free.

The International Centre for Women Playwrights is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting women playwrights around the world.
