"MELINDA STREET" by D. M. Larson

Monologue #1 - approximately 30 seconds

Mind if I step out for a bit, Officer?

Just for a second. I promise I'll be right back.
Oh, what's the mater, Officer? Am I getting a little too close.
Oh, I'm so scared. Little police man's gonna handcuff me. Or is that a game you like to play with the girls?

Monologue #2 - approximately 1 minute


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.
