"Beauty and Perfection" by D. M. Larson

SHELLY

Beauty and perfection. That's what you are Miss Shelly. Bet those boys back home would be doing a quite a bit of howling if they saw you now. Look at all the wonderful things time has done to you.

(Lowers mirror)

And when I get to Hollywood and become a star, they'll wonder where this goddess came from. But my past will be a mystery, because life before this moment ain't worth telling about. After those early years things have only gotten better.

Actually I'll bet being born was one of the biggest let-downs of all. I spent all that time wrapped up in that little space in my mama, and for what? I pop out and look around, screaming, wondering if this was such a good idea. Wondering why someone didn't tell me sooner what it was gonna be like those first few years, 'cause if someone had told me, I don't think I woulda come out.

"New Love Found" by D. M. Larson
Comedy Monologue for Male Actor from the published play "Flowers in the Desert" ISBN-13: 978-1530169085


LINC
Community service... Better than jail I guess. I just wish I didn't have to wear this stupid uniform. And these sick people... Why is everyone in the hospital so sick all the time? I hope I don't catch anything. And who wants books and magazines anymore? Especially out of date ones. How old are these magazines? "Man on the Moon!" I feel like the man on the moon working in this place, wandering around with my books and magazines and flowers, totally out of place in some weird outer space... Lost on the dark side of the moon. Well I guess they'd want something to read if the TV in their room is broken. Man, that would suck. Stuck in a hospital bed with no TV. Seems like the only one who wants anything from me is Old Ms. Sadie. I hope she doesn't want me to read to her again. There is nothing creepier than reading a romance to an old lady.

(Sees a new patient)

Wait a minute. Who is that? Check out the new girl. What's her name? Where's the room chart? Shelly. That's a pretty name. I have to meet her. I wonder if she wants a magazine... Teen Beat? No, she looks more classy than that. She looks like a Cosmo girl. I mean Cosmo woman.

(Looks frantically at cart for something to give her)

Flowers. I will give her flowers. Old Ms. Sadie has enough flowers, She doesn't need these. Little note... Lost...

(Takes note off flowers and tosses it)

New love ... found.

(Boldly goes to meet Shelly)

TIPS FOR FINDING MONOLOGUES

1. Be sure to find a monologue that is right for your age. For example, don't pick one about a mother, father, wife or husband if you're not old enough to be one.

2. Select a monologue you can relate to. Find one that has an experience you share or an emotional you can connect to. Look for a character you understand or that is similar to yourself. Here are some good monologues for TEEN FEMALES and TEEN MALES? (or check out the list below)

3. Find the right mood or tone for your monologue. Do you need a TEEN COMEDY or a TEEN DRAMA?

4. If you are performing the monologue in a competition, you may need to select one from a published play. Here are MONOLOGUES FROM PUBLISHED PLAYS.

SUE

Of course. I'm always happy to help an officer of the law. My father was a police officer. I have a lot of respect for what you do. Mom was always so nervous about him... I was too... so worried what might happen to him. There are a lot of crazy people out there who aren't afraid to hurt a cop. We'd watch the news each night, worried we might hear something about dad. The news would always do those horrible teasers... officer shot in the line of duty... story at 10... mom would always scramble for the phone. She had to know he was okay. But I'd still stay up late and wait for him... every night... waiting. I'd watch from my bedroom window and when I saw him come home, I could finally sleep.

"A BREAKING HEART"
(one minute version)
by D. M. Larson

NELL

What? Upset? No, I'm not upset. Why would I be... upset...
(starts to cry)
No, I'm not crying. I said, I'm not crying!
(bursts in to tears)
I don't want your pity. I don't want a shoulder to cry on. I want... to be left...
(yells)
...ALONE! Don't you get it. I want to be alone!
(pauses... sadly reflects)
I've always wanted to be alone. I never wanted to get close to anyone. I never wanted us to get close. And I guess I was closer to you than you were to me.
(turns angry)
Don't lie to me. I know you don't mean it. I don't want to hear any more lies! I don't want you to make something up so you can get out of this. I want it all laid out on the table. (yells)
I want to know the truth!
(long pause... cries... then manages to say)
I want to know why you are breaking my heart.
