"She is Mine" - serious dramatic monologue - free solo stage play script - possible duologue

"She is Mine"
by D. M. Larson

(This can be done as a solo piece or a second actor can enter who is a similar build and look to the actor but is disguised - face hidden - in a hood and/or hat and sunglasses - walking around in the shadows playing a silent demon-like stalker)

Please not now... Why did you have to follow me here?

I want to be left alone.

I can't get away from you can I? You'll always be with me. No matter how hard I try to hide, you always find me.

Therapy... drugs... nothing helps.

Why won't you stop?

I'm never alone. I never hear the silence. There's always something screaming inside me, never giving me peace. Screaming inside I can't even think... Can't even feel.

Can't you allow me this one thing? Can't you allow one moment of happiness?

She helps me… she helps me forget about the past... helps me forget about you.

I thought I was rid of you!

(He sees her approaching)

It's her...

Please go. I'll do anything, just let me have this one thing... Go! Now!

No! I can't let her see you. Please, leave her alone. You can't have her.

She is mine!

(In a two person version with the silent stalker, the final line "She is mine!" can be said together)

This is a short 30 second monologue from the play "The Princess and the Pirate" about the nanny of the Princess (Fuchsia). The nanny hates pirates because a past love left her to become one.

by D. M. Larson
They lured him away with talk of adventure and riches. Yes, we were poor but I was happy. I didn't want anything more. We had enough. But I guess it was only enough for me... I should have told him that. I wish I had said that more. I think he wanted to get rich so he could marry me. But I would have married him no matter how poor he was.

1 minute monologue - Humpty Dumpty Private Egg Hard Boiled Detective


(One Minute Version of Monologue)

by D. M. Larson



I could continue walking on eggshells around her like everyone else or I could put all my eggs in one basket and say it straight. I knew she was trouble and I told her so. I told her she was like one of those riddles that scramble your brains like, "what came first, the chicken or the egg?"

I told her to beat it unless she wanted to have a talk with all the King's horses and all the King's men.

But then her eyes teared up and I was speechless because I'd never seen this cool egg crack before. Hey, I've got feelings. I'm a bit soft-boiled around the dames. And this dame needed help. And help is what I do, because I'm

Humpty Dumpty, Private Egg. Hard-boiled detective.

1 minute monologue - A Breaking Heart

(one minute version) 
by D. M. Larson 

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... 


 ...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. 


 I want to know the truth! 

 (long pause... cries... then manages to say) 

 I want to know why you are breaking my heart.

1 minute monologue - I Need Detention


by D. M. Larson

I need detention. I really need detention. See, there's this girl... I know, I know, it always starts with a girl ... But this girl is special... I mean it this time... Really special. Her name is Harmony... But she goes by Harm. Cute huh? She can harm me any time she wants. And she has too. A couple of times. But I deserved it... Cause I touched her once. I didn't touch her anywhere bad. Just on the shoulder. And she broke my finger. So I guess we kind of held hands.

1 minute monologues - A Thing for Nerds

(one minute version)
by D. M. Larson

I've always had a thing for nerds. All kinds ... Geeky, Weirdo, Freak, Techie, Trekkie or Dork... you name it... I want to catch them all.. Sorry for the Pokemon reference... I am a bit of a nerd myself. Girl nerds are rare but we do exist.

I hung out with nerd-lings as a kid. We played Dungeons and Dragons and I loved being dungeon master ...holding their fates in my hands. It doesn't matter how pretty you are, just the fact you're female and like something nerdy makes you very attractive to them. Other kinds of guys could care less about me... But to nerds... I was hot.
