Lonely/Vulnerable monologue for a man

    Hi

    I'm looking for a monologue that would help me to convey a feeling of lonliness or vulnerablilty at an audition later this week. Maybe not too tragic, but one that is kind of bittersweet and also youthful.

    If anyone's got any pointers I'd be greatful.

    Thanks,

    Kris

    Hi Kris,

    Try "The Seagull" by Chekhov. Konstantin has some really heartfelt monologues in there.

    Hi Kriss,

    Can it be a movie monologue? This website has tons of monologues from movies. May be helpful. It gives a short synopsis of the content and feel of the monologue/scene. May be handy for just skimming through initially to narrow some down as possibles?

    Good luck!

    Also, forgot to say that it has links to lots of other monologue websites that might be of help now or in the future.

    Just seen "Scenes from the back of beyond" by Meredith Oakes at the Royal court(my new second home).

    Apart from being a good play, bittersweet and very nicely paced, it's chock full of monologues.

    There's one in particular for a younger man, who's left his wife, become involved with a young girl and had all his expectations stuffed up- and he's telling someone else not idolise him because he's a scientist.

    It's actually still running at the RC (upstairs) so you could see it, then buy the play there, and see what you thought.

    Hope that helps...

    I'm going to see "drunk enough to say I love you" on friday night, which promises to be very good. It's also got an all male cast, so perhaps a good source of material, too?

    Drunk enough...might also bear fruit...

    a guy in my drama class did a monologue from the 'glee club'by Richard Cameron, the character has just lost his wife he has one kid in a care home and his two daughters are living with his sister because he can't look after them and he is soo lonely that he is shagging a widow because he needs the company. If this monologue is done well it is extremly moving.
