In 1981, Eric Bogosian performed his first solo monologue, Men Inside, at New York City’s Franklin Furnace before going on to write and perform in six Off-Broadway solo shows from 1981 to 2000. Talk Radio, his first play and most successful work, premiered in 1987 at the Public Theater in New York with Eric in the lead roll of shock jock Barry Champlain. Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, the play was adapted into a film by Oliver Stone the following year, with Eric once again in the lead roll. One of America’s premier performers and most original playwrights, Bogosian has also written three novels, and was seen recently on Broadway in Donald Margulies’ Time Stands Still.
