REVIEWS & RECOMMENDATIONS
“Ooo! I am glad I stumbled upon this monologue! I love the strength in which Jules controls this narrative in just a few biting words. The recipient of these words will most definitely want to eat a whole tray of cookies after enduring this sneak attack! Deliciously baked, displayed and sold!”
(Jacquelyn Floyd-Priskorn)

“In less than half a page, John Mabey gives us a richly realized character in Jules, whose warmth, wit and hurt come through in every word of this brief but powerful monologue. The final line cuts with razor-sharp precision.”
(Adam Richter)

“An engaging little monologue that uses an unlikely, yet oddly perfect, metaphor for marriage. As always, Mabey’s heart and generosity of spirit shine through the deft writing.”
(Robert Weibezahl)

“A short-short monologue that does so much, revealing through subtext and detail a distinct character that will leave you smiling.”
(Asher Wyndham)
“A one minute monologue loaded with tasty metaphor and more than ample sweetness to go around. SECRET INGREDIENT is rich with subtext and a wonderful confectionary delight for an actor to perform. Would love to see this performed at a festival.”
(Vivian Lermond)
