Female Monologue from Thanksgiving Dinner

“. . . I’m at the kids table because I’m the popular aunt and all the kids want to sit with me, but really it’s because I don’t have a man in my life . . .”

I remember spending hours combing through monologue books and plays looking for that illusive 2-minute monologue that would allow me to demonstrate ability and truthfulness in acting while still being unique enough that casting directors would sit up and listen.

It’s been quite a while now since I’ve auditioned for anything, since I’ve focused instead on writing for the stage.  But after a couple of actor friends recently asked me about using monologues from some of my pieces for auditions, it occurred to me that perhaps the actors among our readers might enjoy seeing a few monologues from some of my plays.

This post marks the first in a 2010 monthly series of some of these monologues.  Feel free to share these and use them for auditions (just let me know if you do).  Enjoy.
