This is a new monologue that is a bit Doctor Who inspired. It could be about a companion who went on an adventure with the Doctor, but is worried she was left behind. Or it could represent any number of spontaneous type relationships where you rush into it without thinking logically.

***



Why did you leave me here?! I didn’t ask for this. You drag me on some adventure and then drop me off with no clue how to get back. That’s just great. Wonderful! I’m so glad I was spontaneous and rushed off for something exciting and mysterious.

How could I be so stupid?! I didn’t even know you that well. Sure, you were cute… and fun. And made me laugh. But I didn’t really know anything about you. You offered me something I never had before though… freedom. I was trapped in my life. I didn’t think there was ever a way out.

It’s strange how easily we get trapped in our lives. You get things you want, but then you become a slave to those things, having to make payments, having to keep them repaired, and then paying more money to fix or replace them. Nothing is ever paid for. Or on those rare occasions where you do pay something off, then it breaks soon after, or some new flashy model comes along that you have to have.

I guess that’s what you were. You were some flashy new model that got my attention and offered me something better. But that’s all you were… flash. Flash and no substance. You gave up on me like everyone else. Gave up and left me here… alone… worse off than I started.

Am I worse off though? You did some me some amazing things that I’d never seen before. I did feel more alive than I ever felt before. My old life left me feeling dead. But you made me live… and live well… even if it was for a little while.

There you are! Where have you been?! I thought you left me. This? I was just making recording… it doesn’t matter. What matters is you and me and today. Where are we going next?

ACTING TIPS FOR NEW ACTORS

The main mistake I see new actors make when performing monologues is that they pick only one emotion and use it throughout the whole monologue.

One example is with the monologue called Demons

When I had actors try the Demons monologue, several selected one sad or angry emotion and used it throughout which made it a boring performance. The best performances were the ones who selected different types of emotions for different parts of the script. Even though the whole monologue is sad, there are elements of anger, fear, hurting, desperation, madness and even love. The actors that found different emotions to use in different parts were the most interesting and enjoyable to listen to.
