Teaching Shakespeare: A Trilogy

Three hit monologues. "There's nothing wrong with having fun in the theatre, especially when Shakespeare is the subject . . . I'd give it an 'A.'" Michael Lazan, Backstage (New York) Teaching Shakespeare: A Trilogy tells the story of Dr. Keir's descent from tenure-track college Shakespeare professor (Teaching Shakespeare), down to community college, adult education lecturer (Teaching Detroit), and finally to high school substitute teacher (Teaching As You Like It). "A very funny, often cutting and totally engaging work . . . formidably delightful." Doug DeVita, Off-Off Broadway Review (New York)

Shakespeare Authorship Question: A Crackpot's View

A quick, fun read that will leave you wondering why schools and colleges aren't teaching both sides of the Shakespeare story. Kindle Store

Mark Twain's 'Is Shakespeare Dead?'

Mark Twain's hilarious (1909) debunking of the myth that William Shakespeare wrote the works of Shakespeare, adapted as a monologue for the stage by Keir Cutler, PhD. Performed across Canada and the US. Kindle Store

Shakespeare's Mulberry Tree

The true story of "Shakespeare's Mulberry Tree" of Stratford-upon-Avon is not generally known. Keir Cutler, who possesses a PhD in theater, tells the fascinating historical account of how the mulberry tree in back of Shakespeare's former home became "one of the most valuable assets of the town," and why its cutting down was viewed as a "sacrilege." Kindle Store

Stop Ranting and Start Loving

"Stop Ranting and Start Loving" is based on the romantic-comedy, solo play, "Rant Demon." The true autobiographical story of how author/performer Keir Cutler learned to stop ranting and start loving. Colin MacLean gave the show "Five Stars," and wrote in the Edmonton Sun, "Keir brings his charisma and powerful storytelling skills to his own life in "Rant Demon" and before he is done he has us completely won over. He is funny, self-aware, articulate, intelligent and, finally, vulnerable. The audience stood and cheered him at the end. ... Keir Cutler has brought us a remarkable and moving story of redemption. His own." "Love and Ranting in Montreal" is a funny story of personal triumph! Kindle Store


"Magnificence" is an award-winning piece of storytelling ("Best English Text" Montreal Fringe 2019) by Keir Cutler, loosely adapted from May Ebbitt Cutler's (Keir's mother) memoir from her childhood titled "I Once Knew An Indian Woman."
