In January I contributed a monologue to a play that was staged at my local theatre. A number of local authors contributed pieces, which were then edited to form a stage play, with horse racing sequences between the monologues.
The play was called 'A Night at the Races', and writers were invited to create monologues for characters who might attend a race course. My character, Ray, is a self-deluding gambler, who believes he has a scientific system for picking winners, and who has some interesting views on the banking crisis.
The actor who played him, Nick Hayles, has worked with film-maker Mark Hindle to create this brilliant short video of the monologue. Hope you enjoy it. Feel free to leave a comment below, and if you want to contact either Nick or Mark, contact me and I can put you in touch.
