"The Bunker" 1 minute short acting monologue for male or female actor solo stage play script

I never thought we’d have to use the bunker. I thought you were crazy for keeping one. But you kept the food fresh and checked the supplies and made us do drills. And here we are… using it. It’s actually happening. The world has gone nuclear and we might be all that is left. I mean, who has shelters like this anymore? No one thinks this is going to happen. No one thinks any leader is crazy enough to pull the trigger. But someone was crazy enough to do it and lost control. They lost control of everything. Egos with an extra helping of madness. Their pride trumps logic. It’s not about good vs. evil. It’s about who has the bigger bomb. But when everyone has a bigger bomb, then what’s left? Only us?

I don’t know if I want to be left here alone, with no one else. There won’t be much of a world left for us anymore.

I am sorry I was so hard on you. I was a real jerk about this. It turns out you’re not the crazy one. You’re the only sane one left.

Listen to the madness. Listen to a world gone mad.
