NEW LOVE FOUND by D. M. Larson


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 Especially out of date ones.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. And she looks like all woman under that little gown... 


(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)

New Love Found - free monologue for teen high school male solo stage play script



Call Me Dumper - male version of monologue - comedy, humor, teen - free solo stage play script

"CALL ME DUMPER"
(male version) 
by D. M. Larson

They call me Dumper. I got the nickname when I was a young in' I was watching that Bambi movie. Every time I would see Thumper I would get so excited I would take a dump in my pants. I loved that rabbit for some reason. He just made me so happy. So happy I'd mess myself. We all need something like that in our lives. Something that makes us so happy we lose control. When ma finally got me potty trained, she didn't let me watch that movie anymore.  


So I had to find other things to make me happy. Not much did after that. No toy or treat made me as excited as that cute little bunny did.  


Maybe I will buy myself a pet bunny rabbit. I will hug and squeeze him and name him George. Bunnies are so soft and cuddly. I just wanna pick them up and smoosh them on my face. 


Oh man. I have to go to the crapper just thinking about it.

Call Me Dumper - female version - comedy monologue for women, teens - solo stage play script

CALL ME DUMPER
(female version)
By D. M. Larson

They call me Dumper. I got the nickname when I was a youngin'... I was watching that Bambi movie. Every time I would see Thumper I would get so excited I would take a dump in my pants. I loved that rabbit for some reason. He just made me so happy. So happy I'd mess myself. We all need something like that in our lives. Something that makes us so happy we lose control. When ma finally got me potty trained, she didn't let me watch it anymore.  So I had to find other things to make me happy. Not much did after that. No dolly or sweetie made me that excited.  No boy could either.  When I got old enough to like boys that is.  They ain't worth nothing around here. 


Boys here never could make me happy and I didn't want to make them happy the way they wanted me to.


I tried dating them some but it never works out. There ain't plenty more fish in this sea. These is shallow waters and there are pretty slim pickins.  Seems like half of them are my cousins and I am not the kissing cousin type.  And the ones left over after that are the catch and release kind. Because when you get one, you quickly want to throw them back.


So when I started breaking up with guys my nickname came back to haunt me. All the boys started calling me Dumper again. 


That's the problem with a small town... things stick around from your childhood. You get a reputation and you get stuck with it. Everyone sees you one way and there's no way out. I could become the smartiest, prettiest girl in town and everyone would still call me Dumper. I could go off and feed African kids and cure Ebola and win the Nobel peace prize and come home and they'd still call me Dumper.


Why? Because it's easier I guess. Easier to keep you in your place. That way no one gets out of hand or too important. Know your place and play your part.

"Get Better Again" by D. M. Larson

JACK

Look what I found... A wallet... A nice wallet... It's a treasure. My treasure. I won't show you... No...

You wanna see what's inside don't you? It's pretty nice... So nice. It's green. Lots of green.

He lost it... Finders keepers...

And I know him... I know this man... Here's his picture... See, you know him too... We all know him... Because he's... you know... More than famous... Infamous... So infamously bad...

He hurts people. I've seen it too. Hurts them .... Skkkrttt! 

(Motion across throat) 

Takes them in the alleys and cuts them. There was a struggle this time... She fought back... And he dropped this... My treasure... My greens...

You ok? Why're you not happy for me?  You jealous?

Sick again? Always sick. You need help... Help so bad. I wanna help you. I do. I didn't mean to get mad at you. We're friends.  We're buddies. We got each other's back, right. That's what you said, "I got your back, Jack."

Hey, the green! You can go and get help with my green. You wanna do that? Get better? Go to the hospital and get better. And rest up... They feed you, bathe you... Fix you up. Get you clean again. I love being clean again.

You go... Take it... Take it and get better. See... I have your old coat... You gave it to me. I don't forget...  Take the green, get good again. You was good to me, now I be good to you. Go! Get better.

We all want to get better again.

Advice on performing monologue First Words - free acting mini classes series - solo stage play actor

Here is some help on performing the monologue "First Words" by D. M. Larson

Step 1: read the entire play the monologue is from (Flowers in the Desert) to learn more about the character of Tina:

http://www.freedrama.net/flowers.html

Step 2:
Trying breaking the scene down in smaller parts and analyze the emotions she is feeling and explore why she might feel that way. 

Below are some examples of emotions she might be feeling and thoughts going through her head.

*(Tina starts out sarcastic, making fun of something she just saw on TV. She thinks she is being funny and playful but it comes out sounding kind of mean as well)


TINA

I watch TV and see those happy families with the little baby who's takin' its first steps or saying its first word. Them folks make such a big deal out of those things. They laugh, they cry... all 'cause they love their little hairless baboon.

(Tina smiles ironically and kind of chuckles but then she pauses because the family she saw makes her sad because she never had a family like that and she is jealous)


And I sit there all that time and wonder... who was there when I took my first step? Who was there when I said my first word?

(Tina is quiet because the sadness starts to overwhelm her. She fights to bury the memory. She doesn't believe in crying. She thinks it is a sign of weakness. She is too tough for crying. She remembers to be strong. She is protected by a barrier she build and refuses to show any sadness. She goes back to her sarcastic joking)


I doubt if my first word was mama or papa. I'm sure it was four letters though.

(She chuckles a little, then sighs. She realizes that she is sad and hurting. She feels like she lost something by not having a family like everyone else. Bitterness and anger comes through now)


I don't care about them... And they don't care about me. 

(She fights back tears. She tries to be tough again)


But who really cares anyway.


END

Step 3: Draw  from you own experiences and emotions.  What are times you felt the same way as her? How did you react? How would you show these emotions to others?

Step 4: Memorize, practice, perfect then perform!

Empty Buckets - free monologue for kid, child - angry, sarcastic - solo stage play script

This monologue is a memory from my childhood.

For permission to use this monologue, contact doug@freedrama.net (please include the title in your request "Empty Buckets").

“Empty Buckets” by D. M. Larson

LANE

But why do I have to buy the buckets from you. Can't you just give them to me?

But you got them for free. Who'd want to buy these? No one needs a bunch of old used cans!

No I'm not upset! 

(clearly is)

Fine. Here's my $20. The 20 I worked half the summer to get picking strawberries. Sorry I quit okay? It was killing my back. That's the toughest $20 of my life.

So I get 40 buckets... and I sell them for a dollar.  I'll double my money.  But what if I can't sell them?  

(sarcastic)

Yeah, yeah.  I know.  No negative talk. I gotta visualize success.

(sees buckets)

Wait. You sold me dirty buckets?  But you got them for free... AND you want me to clean them?  What's in here?  Tar?!

How do I scrub tar out of these? A wire brush. Oh this will be fun.  I should have just sold lemonade.  Can I?  And lose my investment? You mean you won't give me my money back?  But...I'm your son.  

You want me to learn a lesson?  What lesson?  That my dad is a crook?

"The Sunday Gamble" free monologue for male - ironic comedy solo stage play script

A monologue just in time for the Superbowl :)

For permission to use this monologue, contact doug@freedrama.net (please include the title in your request "The Sunday Gamble."

****

"The Sunday Gamble" by D. M. Larson

Come on... Please. I'm begging you God. Give me to this and I will give you my all... I will dedicate myself to you. Scout's honor!

(Tries to figure out number of fingers for Scout salute)

I need this. I know I always pray that but this time I really do. I know it seems like I pray to you only when I really want something ... Or really worried about something. But that's what you're there for right? Like an exam in school or the flu. I know should talk to you when things are good. I know it's good to be thankful for good things too.  I just forget. Forgive me? Forgive and forget? You forgive I forget. Just a little prayer humor. Sorry about that.

So how about it God? I really need this. I have never wanted anything so much in my life.

Please help my team to win on Sunday. I have a lot riding on this one. And if you give me this, I promise to be at church every Sunday... except this one. But every single Sunday after this. How is that for a deal?
