and here's a letter from a student who has used
THE TOWEL LADY for auditions-

Dear Janet,
My name is Kendra M., and I am a student currently living in Italy on foreign exchange. The past few years I have used your piece, "The Towel Lady" for various auditions and theater workshops. This coming week I am auditioning for a theater school in the city I'm living in and I have been permitted to perform a piece in English. While looking at your site I couldn't help but notice that you offer a free monologue for those interested, so I wanted to write and say, "I'm interested!"
I look forward to your response, I love "The Towel Lady" very much!
Thank you!
