Male Monologue with good emotional range.

    Hello

    I am looking for a monologue, which perhaps isn't in your typical monologue books,but something a bit different and out there.

    However the piece must have emotional range.

    My playing age is 25. I am after a piece that is mature.

    Does anyone know any monologues from plays that can help me!?

    Hi Matthew,

    I once performed this for a casting showcase, and got some auditions/work out of it. It definitely has emotional range, which can be played on as much or as little as you like.

    I cut a few bits out to make it shorter/less wordy, but in general there's a lot of power, bitterness and despair to it, which is lots of fun to experiment with.

    Hope it's of some help.

    Best,

    Xander

    Have you considered writting your own, that way you will understand the character and you can build into it different emotions to show case you acting ability

    I agree writing your own is the way.
