Playwright

I’m working on a Writing exercise and need support.

STEP 1- View the photos in this module. Photo page. Choose one to use as your inspiration for your monologue.

Step two: Using one of the photos as inspiration develop a character then write a short monologue (no more than 1 page) A Monologue is one actor speaking. Shakespeare used these often. You might of even had to memorize a monologue in your high school English or Drama class. Some ideas-You should know your characters wants likes fears, After your rough draft edit your monologue- no need for repeats. See the example of a monologue I attached from a new play called Cicada. View in Module page Monologue.

Please keep your monologue PG. Remember that most of the scene needs to be about your character TALKING…scripts are about what the characters are SAYING. You can write some actions or stage directions, but you really need to concentrate on the dialogue.
