This is a combination of two different monologues adapted from two different plays. One is from a scene called "Ghosts I've Known" in the script "Secrets of my Soul" and another is from a scene called "Much Madness" from a script called "The Weird, Wild and Wonderful Days of School." 

This final version appears in the book 
"The Bullied, Bungled and Botched" 
ISBN-13: 978-1518661082

The scripts were written around the same time so that's why they work well together. Plus they have a similar theme of dealing with the death of her mother and having a father who abandoned her.

The monologue should be around 7-9 minutes long but if you come up with a different time, please post in the comments below. If you make a video version, share a link in the comments as well.  Be sure to credit the author and in your video description.
