"Nervous" female short dramatic monologue from stage play script Death of an Insurance Salesman

"Nervous" is a female monologue from Death of an Insurance Salesman ISBN-13: 978-1518665547



****

"Nervous" by D. M. Larson

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.

This monologue comes from the following scene in "Death of an Insurance Salesman":
(MAX wanders over to SUE. She turns and sees him and drops her folder and does a nervous smile)

MAX (CONT.)
Here... let me help you with that.

SUE
Thank you so much. I'm so clumsy today.

MAX
I was wondering if I can ask you a few questions?

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.

MAX
Where did your father work?

SUE
Albuquerque. A long time ago. When I was a girl.

MAX
It takes a special family to be a part of a police officer's life.

SUE
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.

MAX
He was lucky to have such a good daughter.

SUE
Was? He still is. He's one of the lucky ones and got to retire.

MAX
I love a happy ending. I hope I am as fortunate.
