"Before You Punch Me..." by D. M. Larson Free 2 minute monologue for male actor
From the published play
"Flowers in the Desert" (stage play script with monologues for teen actors ISBN-13: 978-1530169085)
Before you punch me there is
something you should know.
This woman we're fighting over is no ordinary woman... You don't know how good
you had it.
If I am going to die I want the world to know how great she is... Why do you
want me to shut up? You afraid? You afraid I will say something that will hurt
you? You that sensitive? You gonna cry, Softy?
Then listen... Punch me all you want when I am done... Beat me to a pulp but
let me say how I feel... For her.. Do this one kindness for her... She's worth
Do you know about serendipity? Word too big for you? I should stick
to one or two syllables when speaking to you...
"Serendipity means a "happy accident" or "pleasant surprise"; a fortunate
mistake. Specifically, the accident of finding something good while not
specifically searching for it."
That's what our love was... A happy accident. We didn't plan on this.
She is amazing ... She is so very good... She has made me happier than I
thought was possible. Before her, it was like I was living in black and
white and suddenly she brought color to my world.
And by some miracle she chose me. I thought she was wonderful of course,
but I never thought in a million years she'd want me. She was the
princess to my pauper. The Batman to my Robin. The Picard to my
Wesley Crusher. She was so much better, and I was so unworthy, yet she
wants me. By some incredible stoke of luck, she wants me. And her
kisses will last me until death... Which might not be very far off.
Yes, we're talking about the same woman, you idiot.
(Takes off glasses)
And now you can punch me.
