Josh Walter Statement of Intent My goal in working with this monologue is to practice a more serious role and learn about relaying emotions in a short moonlogue. I am also attempting to get better at memorizing lines and being able to deliver them without being too nervous. I need to practice enough that I can be comfortable and at home with the lines, ideas, and image words. The play itself deals with several issues and themese that I have an interest in, such as the failings of communism and british pop/psychedelic rock in the late 60's. The character of Jan is someone I can relate to, as I feel the same way as him about communism and have many of the albums he owns in the play myself on vinyl records. The semi-character/theme of Syd Barrett in the play is also particularly relevent, because I have all of his albums and have seen several documentaries about his life and decline.
