"I WAS NEVER IMPORTANT"
from the play “Holy Ground” ISBN-13: 978-1502875990

MOLLY

(MOLLY has discovered that she has a special power that will help the other people who have taken refuge in a church during an apocalyptic event. She has never been a leader or a hero and is upset about having this new responsibility)

I wish I knew what that was all about... What does this all have to do with me? I never was important before. I never was special. I'm not the most religious person. I was in the church choir because I loved to sing. I didn't really do much else. I've lived a good enough life but nothing unique... nothing miraculous. I don't know what to do. I have no direction. How can I do something important when I don't even feel important.

(She begins to feel anger and frustration)

I didn't chose this mission... I didn't ask God to make me a vessel or some tool. I didn't chose this, God. I didn't ask for this.

(Her anger turns to sadness. She feels weak and tired)

I'm not strong enough. I'll fail.

(She is quiet a moment and is fighting back the tears. Suddenly she realizes that she can help someone very important to her. This realization gives her new strength)

But if there is some way to help Turk... If I have the power to do that. I want to save him.

(The memories of the horrible evil they have been fighting come back to her and scare her)

He protected me... but he knew something was different... something was very wrong. We tried to keep away from others... we didn't want anyone else to get hurt. But he was injured... and I had to find help.

(She fights back her fear and focuses on saving Turk, the person she loves. Strength and conviction are in her voice now. She has overpowered her sadness and fear)

I have to do something... I can't stand by and let this happen to him... It was so horrible what happened to the others... I can't watch that happen to him too. I have to fight back.

"Ice Queen" - comedy monologue for female

“ICE QUEEN”
by D. M. Larson


MACY


Is she playing an ice queen with a stick up her butt?

I don’t understand why she doesn’t like me. What have I done to her? I mean I practically worship her and all she does is throw insults at me and trashes my presents.

Well, I’ve written her a letter almost every day since she’s been here and she hasn’t written back. In fact she trashes my letters.

I know because I go through her trash.

And I made her these little pictures with me and her doing things together like going to movie premieres and going to the beach…

I cut pictures out of magazines of her and take photos of me and put them together. I sometimes put my head on pictures of Pamela Anderson when I can find them because we have real similar figures.

But she ripped up the last picture I made right in front of me. I swear I’m going to resign as the president of her fan club.
