    Children's Children by Matthew Dunster is amazing. 3 male, 3 female characters, a range of ages, all with fantastic monologues. Good luck!

    Hiya

    You could try 'That Face' by Polly Stenham. Martha, the mother is a great character. Or alternatively, I happen to think Charlotte Jones is a fantastic writer and there are some brilliant parts for women in her plays.

    Looking for monologues is time consuming I know but there are definitely some hidden gems out there - Good luck and happy searching! x

    My only thoughts are: ...don't do Beverly - Abigails party...its been done to Death...as has Victoria wood's writing!

    The suggestions made are very much more imaginative. However, just take an hour or two and try writing your own based real life experience/s I think you'd be amazed as to what you can come up with! It only need be 2 mins or less in all probability. Take the director on a range of emotion....they will be thrilled you wrote your own monologue...and so will you be!
