In this monologue, she alternates between talking directly to the audience, her friend Rita , who is onstage with her, and the man in question. To Rita. Contrary to popular opinion, there are not plenty of fish in the sea, and even if there are, none of them are interested in my bait. To the audience. If monogamy came naturally, why would so many married people have affairs? If people could just evolve past jealousy, we would all probably be a lot happier.
Jealousy is irrational. He wanted something casual, and I was a little disappointed… I got my hopes up, which was stupid, and I got let down, which I should have predicted… And how can I really blame him?
He was up front with me. I want a real relationship or nothing. If I thought I could do better, then none of this would have ever happened.
I wish you wished you had room for me in your life. I wish you gave a damn. From Thanksgiving in the Wilderness , a play by Kellie Powell. You know what, jack-ass? The world is full of guys like you - sarcastic guys who spend all their time cleverly pointing out the shortcomings of others, rolling their eyes, shaking their heads, passing judgment and cracking jokes. Emily is an amazing woman! She is one of a kind, and any guy would be lucky to have her.
And you treated her like an underaged Staind groupie at last call! I chose this one because Joan is of a similar age to me which makes her easier to play. I also chose it because the language was quite easy to follow and it….
Today I got an e-mail from an aspiring actor who was trying to track down information about a monologue posted on actorama.
Because all American writers know each other, right? I did a little research and realized that not only was the monologue in question really obscure, it was also kind of terrible - full of bad grammar and excessive!!! So, I decided to put together a list of better alternatives.
So I read this play today. I dunno…. It confirmed my suspicions that I should stick to writing dramas. I found this really frikin fantastic monologue from the play Dogface by Kellie Powell.
Reading about the play online can only do so much. You should always read the play your monologue is from. Yale - along with Natalie and Leah - address their monologues directly to the audience. Is Yale addressing a roomful of people at a memorial service? Is he talking to a therapist at Student Health Services?
I chose not to provide those details in the script. There are a lot of possible answers, there are a lot of different choices that can all work, depending on the production the director is trying to create. There are lots of possible right answers, and honestly? Use your instincts, use your imagination, make the piece your own.
Yes, he feels guilty about not doing anything to help Nell, but logically, he understands that there was probably nothing he could have done. Is he defending himself? Not just the people who loved you, and the people who you loved - your death will have an affect on everyone around you. People you spoke to once. People you never spoke to at all. But I will never know.
So, if you feel the way she did, please, ask for help. Please, keep asking until you get the help you need. But, just so you know, everyone else - your mother, your best friend, and yes, even the guy who sold you your movie ticket - we will. RITA: You know what, jack-ass? Okay, fuck this shit.

I really appreciate it! Could somebody possible please point me in the right direction?
Thank you!! Break a Leg, Kellie Powell. Thanks Google Alerts! There are universal challenges faced by those who produce live entertainment, especially those who do so in New York City. The rising cost of performance space. The financial commitment involved in facilitating a rehearsal process. Audiences with ever-shrinking disposable income and a myriad of alternate entertainment options. The psychological exhaustion of encouraging communication and mediating disputes in an art form defined by the necessity of collaboration.
Indie and amateur producers face yet more challenges - first and foremost, the question of how to keep actors, directors, and technicians motivated when no one is being paid for their time and talent. How to find, borrow, make, or steal that which the company needs, but which the company cannot afford to buy.
How to walk the line between imitating professional theatre and presenting yourself as the cheap and fun alternative to same. The past two years have given me plenty of time to reflect on the challenges of producing, but I found myself motivated to share with you some observations about the challenges that are unique to the production of live horror in NYC. Sure, lots of shows use special effects, but I would argue that special effects are uniquely crucial in the horror genre.
Hitchcock said, "There is no horror in the bang - only in the anticipation of it. But, I would argue that what Aristotle referred to as spectacle is more important in this genre than any other. The dramatic climax of a play needs to be satisfying for the audience.
If the dramatic climax of a play is a violent murder, then the audience is likely going to want to see that murder - usually with as much detail and realism as possible.
The Greeks may have been fans of off-stage violence and gore, but most modern audiences feel they need to see it to believe it. Universally acknowledged masterpiece? But some kid in the 4th row is rolling his eyes because he thinks that blood looks like Kool-Aid. Pretend you're directing a play.
And that play ends with a brutal stabbing. You want your actor holding a knife that looks sharp enough to cut through human flesh. But if you ask an actor to hold a knife that is actually sharp enough to cut through human flesh, you run the risk of it actually doing that.
Stage combat is complicated enough in the average play, but in horror, we add a variety of weapons, sometimes even guns, into the mix. For example, this year's festival shows featured the following weapons: a knife, a box cutter, a letter opener, and a phone bashed over someone's head to knock him unconscious.
You'd be surprised how much time I personally spent trying to add just enough foam padding to the bottom of the phone so that Blayne didn't accidentally slip one night and give Ryan a concussion, but not so much that the audience would find themselves wondering, "Why does the bottom of that phone look like a giant marshmallow?
They know it. And yet Intellectually, they know that what they are watching is not real. But seeing something like that happen has an effect on you, separate from the intellectual reaction your brain is aware of. And, if everyone has done their job properly, then with a little bit of blind luck, someone sitting in the audience can have a real, visceral, emotional reaction to something that they simultaneously know is make-believe.
It's a beautiful thing when that happens, and it's a shame that it can't happen every time. But there are so many things that can go wrong. The blood looks too watery. The blood looks too red. Or - and this is an issue that plagued the Parasite cast - the blood pack just doesn't burst when it's supposed to.
You can practice breaking a blood pack a hundred times, and get it right every time. And then you can go up on stage and do it the exact same way, and it just doesn't break. Having more money to spend on special effects can mitigate the chances of technical snafus, but they cannot completely eliminate them.
Horror films have the benefit of shooting, and re-shooting, and editing a scene until it's absolutely perfect. Theatre happens live. Which means it will almost never be perfect.
