New play by alumnus Evan Krachman '85
West Long Branch, N.J. - Monmouth University's Boom Roasted Productions, a student-run theater group, presents a staged reading of "Little Miss Moonachie" on November 21 at 8 p.m. in Lauren K. Woods Theatre. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
The play, written by alumnus Evan Krachman '85, explores the world of Gail Strickland, a third grade teacher and wounded war veteran. Her transition back to "normal life" after returning home from war is extremely difficult as she deals with the loss of her hand. She is the first soldier from the United States to experience digital neural inter-coupling, a new technology that has a horrific by-product. Gail struggles to maintain her sanity while coping with a secret that could ruin her family and ultimately push her into a catatonic state forever.
Krachman, a writer, inventor, and marketing director at Sony Medical, was inducted as an inaugural member of Monmouth University's Department of Communication Alumni Academy in March 2014. In 2012, he received his first United States patent for a remote HD camera for physician to patient and physician to physician communication.
