Yes, I plan on doing it!
@kiananw Looking forward to seeing it.
With all of you guys interested in so many great plays, I should be watching quite a few monologues this month in this challenge.
A goal has been to find a new monologue to work on. I should probably participate lol
@Janet Burns Yes indeed! Great reason to get one going.
@lisin9 Sometimes the hardest part for me has been to find and CHOOSE one. That's why I really want to get a list going and start working on one/some. Somewhere you mentioned you would prefer they be from plays. Do you have a favorite site to find monologues if we don't have anything in mind? I'd like to spend my time working on one, and not just finding it :)
@Janet Burns I used to spend hours reading play summaries online at Dramatists and Samuel French. If I found a play that sounded interesting, and I thought it might have a role for me, I checked it out for free from the library. Most libraries can borrow from other libraries.
I'm going to keep adding to this so it pops back up to the top of the question list and you all have to notice it!
I need a resource to find good contemporary monologues
I meant comedic contemporary monologues
@Tenea Miller reach out to @Gela Ackerman in your class, we just found out what an unbelievable resource she is for plays!!!
@Tenea Miller, I think you are roughly the same age as me. (Maybe?) I also struggle to find good comedic monologues that are written well for women over 30. Do you have a library card? Because most libraries are part of a system that shares books with each other. When I was a student, I checked out hundreds of plays that came to me from libraries all over the US. So I was able to read (and scan to PDF) lots and lots of plays for free.
Oh, I am definitely doing the challenge. 😍 I just need to decide what monologue to do. So many choices!! I play a lot of character roles, so I think I'm gonna find one that is simple and vulnerable.
@Gela Ackerman Great idea!!
