Ben Rimalower's addiction to spending beyond his means has driven him to extreme lengths all his life. In Bad With Money, he charts his sometimes hilarious, sometimes harrowing struggle to overcome his problem — or get rich trying. In this gripping play-by-play of some his biggest mistakes and their consequences, Rimalower offers a no-holds-barred self-portrait of an addict and casts light on an under-examined taboo. "People tend to be familiar now with alcohol and drug abuse — and I've got those too," the writer-performer says. "But spending money I don't have is really my drug of choice. And considering how many people suffer from the same problem, it's staggering how seldom that is discussed."
Beautiful Monster is a new play depicting the final hours of the life of Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein. On the eve of her expected death, Mary, gripped by madness, is visited by the dead: her husband and Romantic poet Percy Shelley, their shared lover Lord Byron, and literary rival John William Polidori, author of the first known vampire fiction — fiction begun, along with Frankenstein, on that now famous night of ghost stories on the banks of Lake Geneva. As the clock ticks toward Mary's death, she recalls in a series of hallucinations her heart-wrenching confrontations with Percy's formidable mother and the tender friendship of her loving stepsister. She's even confronted by the monster she created.
