Free Online Acting Education Class 2018 Lesson 6

Lesson 6

You will now select two monologues that you will perform for the end of this class.


1. Be sure to find a monologue that is right for your age. For example, don't pick one about a mother, father, wife or husband if you're not old enough to be one.

2. Select a monologue you can relate to. Find one that has an experience you share or an emotional you can connect to. Look for a character you understand or that is similar to yourself. Here are some good monologues for FEMALES and MALES

3. Find the right mood or tone for your monologue. Do you need a COMEDY or a DRAMA?

4. If you are performing the monologue in a competition, you may need to select one from a published play. Here are MONOLOGUES FROM PUBLISHED PLAYS.

The monologues must be from this link:


Select two contrasting monologues - two that are very different from each other - one comedy, one dramatic - or two with very different characters. For example, the character in one monologue is good, kind and innocent and the character in the other one is evil or angry or upset.

Post the names of two monologues you like the best. Answer the following questions about these two monologues:

Why do you like the monologues?

Who is the main character of each monologue?

What is the character like?

Where is the character (the setting/place it is taking place)?

Why is the character saying what they are saying in the monologue? (What's their motivation?)

How did the character get to the point they are now? (what is their background? where did they come from? why are they behaving the way they do?)

Is the monologue from a play? If so, read the play and write about what you learned about the character from the play.

Post in the comments below your answers to the questions above (or a link to a video or audio response).
