On the Outskirts of Everything, written and performed by Tim Collins
Winner of "Best Dramatic Script" at United Solo Festival, NYC 2012
"Collins is a writer and actor of enormous intelligence, range, and sensitivity. His ability to crystallize much of what’s ailing the American psyche just now is both uncanny and invaluable."
–Martin Denton, NYTheatre.com

"The most impressive of the United Solo shows I saw—and all of these were excellent—was Tim Collins's On the Outskirts of Everything. In six monologues by six different characters, he created a brilliant, surreal expedition into the terrifying isolation and fragmentation of contemporary life. Few of us have escaped anger management, Google, fast food restaurants, New Age fads, and stuffed animals. Tim Collins' intense, whirlwind tour of how they degrade human consciousness to the point where what we have been brought up to regard as sanity, even humanity, is not only out of our reach, but irrelevant, is a work of genius and shows, more than any other solo theater piece I have seen, just what the medium can achieve. This is the future of solo theater." Michael Miller, New York Arts, http://newyorkarts.net

ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF EVERYTHING is a new, multi-character, one-man show.
Six monologues, six characters, six men on the edge. Observe, as an anger management support group slowly spirals into chaos. Submit to the awesome power of Google. Learn everything there is to know about love from a stuffed animal. Understand your role in the Universe by obeying The Dog Whisperer. And get everything you’ve ever truly wanted while waiting in line at McDonald’s. Frenetic, comedic, dramatic monologues, all new, just for you.
