This monologue is free for use in an audition, workshop, classroom or competition. Please request permission before using this monologue from doug@freedrama.net


DELIA

I fear God. I don't trust him. I am afraid what he is going to do. I am afraid of what will happen every day... If I go outside, what will be waiting for me? There's something wrong out there. Something's not right.

* * *

How can I trust trust in God? How can I trust the one who took my father away? How can I trust the one who turned my mother into a drunk? How I trust the one who put me in the house of someone who abused me? Every day I lived in fear. What would happen if I stepped outside my room? I didn't know what was waiting for me. I never knew what would wake up that day. The creep, the angry one, the monster... I didn't even want to get out of bed anymore. It got too hard. I was too scared. I would hide and pray to God to help me. But God never did. My childhood was gone and my only escape was adulthood.

* * *

Even if God didn't do it why did he let it happen? I can't handle it... I'm going crazy.. The fear is crippling me... I have to drag myself out of bed and force myself to live each day... Sure, I put on this happy face... People think I am pretty cheerful... No one cares to see the pain under my skin... The pain that's ripping at my soul.

END OF SCENE

MELINDA

Look, ladies. If you want to act with me you've got to follow a few simple rules.

When I'm on stage, you all back up and give me room.

The key is to stay upstage of me at all times.

(Points upstage)

That's upstage. And I will be downstage.

(She wakes downstage regally)

Who is the professional award winning actor here? Me. So let me handle this.

The key, girls, is to not steal my light. You'll have your time to play act while I'm off stage.

(reacts to one of the other women and speaks mockingly)

But... But... Nothing. That's the way it's going to be.

"Masked Man" free comedy monologue for older female

Here is a new monologue from an upcoming play I am working on called "MASKED MAN." In this monologue, a little old lady talks about a masked hero who saved a bus full of senior citizens and her love of masked man from her past.

This monologue is free for use in an audition, workshop, classroom or competition. Please request permission before using this monologue from doug@freedrama.net


SADIE

Oh, it was so exciting. It reminded me of my senior prom... Or was it the time the bank was robbed? Either way, it was so exciting.

I have always loved masked men. I enjoy a bit of mystery. Most men are so simple.... Easy to read. But a masked man becomes a whole new kind of man. One with something to hide. A mystery I must uncover.

I miss Roger. He was a mystery. We met one of those costume parties where everyone was wearing a mask. It was his eyes... His beautiful eyes... I could get lost in those eyes forever.

I never told anyone this but I know Roger was the one who robbed that bank. I recognized his eyes. And the way he waved that gun around and yelled at people... It was so scary... And exciting. That's always how he was.... Scary and exciting.

It was so nice seeing Roger again... Rushing on the bus, being a hero. I like him being a hero too. As long as he is in a mask. I love the mask. Good or bad, the mask is perfect.

Please Tell him I'm here. That I want to see him again... and give him a kiss.
