"Simple, True, Honest Love" monologue for female from a published play
This is a monologue for a female that I adapted from the scene "Princess from Another Planet" that is in the published play "Between Good and Evil"
Lila is from Earth and is the girlfriend of Peter, a scientist, who has been asked by an alien Princess to come to her planet to help with a crisis. Lila doesn't trust the alien Princess and wants to stop Peter from going with her.
“SIMPLE, TRUE, HONEST LOVE”
by D. M. Larson
I don't care. I won't let you take Peter from me. I'll risk everything to save him. He's my world. I don't need anything else but him.
Quiet. You're in trouble too, mister. Let's go, Peter.
(Peter seems torn and hesitates)
I know I'm not perfect, but I do really love you. She's just going to use you. Chew you up, take what you have to offer and then spit you out. You are just a tool to her. A means to an end and then she'll cast you aside. You know I'm not like that. You know I love you for you and not what I can get out of you. So... what do you chose? A crazy, wild fling that will end in ruin... or simple, true, honest love?
