About the author:
Timothy Mooney, author of the new acting textbook "Acting at the Speed of Life; Conquering Theatrical Style" and "The Big Book of Moliere Monologues" has given over a hundred thousand students their first introduction to Moliere through his one-man play, Moliere Than Thou. Mooney also presents one monologue from every Shakespeare play in the one-man show, "Lot o' Shakespeare," and a series of great historical speeches in "The Greatest Speech of All Time." Mr. Mooney is the former Founder and Editor of "The Script Review" and was the Artistic Director of Chicago's "Stage Two Theatre," where he produced nearly fifty plays in five years. When Stage Two turned to the classics, Mr. Mooney started writing new versions of the plays of Moliere, with a mischievous sense of rhyme. He has now written seventeen iambic pentameter variations of the plays of Moliere, produced around the world. High School productions of Mr. Mooney's "The Misanthrope," "The Miser," "The Imaginary Invalid," and "Tartuffe" have gone on to state finals in Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Virginia, North Carolina and Alabama, while his "Doctor in Spite of Himself," took third place in the Scottish Community Drama Association National Festival, and was a finalist at Italy's Sanremo Global Education Festival. Mooney created "Criteria" as a short story, in 2002, and has been performing it live as a "One-Man Comic Sci-Fi Thriller" since 2003. Mr. Mooney continues to present his one-man shows across North America and recently presented both "Moliere Than Thou" and "Lot o' Shakespeare" at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and festivals, conferences and schools across the United States and Canada. He can be found in hundreds of videos on the internet, presenting Moliere, Shakespeare and much more, along with clips from his acting workshops.


A One-Man, Comic, Sci-Fi Thriller!

Authored by Timothy Mooney

A One-Man Comic Sci-Fi Thriller! Three hundred years into the future, numberism has replaced racism, and your Social Security Number determines your very existence. One man, on a mission to wipe out the "bloated, bourgeois Fives," finds his entire worldview challenged by a chance encounter in a country diner. Raised under the radar, the man has been brought up to bring about the destruction and the conquest of "the Fives" at a time when the United States has splintered into six "Unions," areas determined by the first digit of the Social Security Number each citizen now carries, tattooed on the palm of his or her hand. "Criteria" is a One-Man Play written for a single, agile performer (Timothy Mooney, himself, created and performed the role in the play's world premiere), who plays Terrorist, Waitress and Trucker in quickly shifting character dialogue that is both hilarious and thrilling.
