free solo stage play script monologue

NO WITNESSES

by D. M. Larson

From the published play "Bullied, Bungled and Botched" ISBN-13: 978-1518661082



(Female Version of Monologue)

I saw it... This terrible thing.  It happened to this girl I don't even like.  And no one knows who did it... Except me.
Do I tell? 

It's between what is right and what will ruin your life.

I don't even like her... She brings it on herself.
Why does she have to be so... Weird?

And if I tell... Everyone will turn against me... I will be like her... An outcast... Invisible.

Is that how it happens... One little thing you do turns you in to a leper? Social leprosy.

The right thing feels so wrong. I know I'm supposed to tell the truth but the truth will not set me free.  The truth will ruin me... Keeping quiet will ruin her... And I don't know if I care.

I guess that's what happened to all those guys who stood up for what was right... Gandhi shot, MLK shot, Jesus crucified... I'm no Jesus.

I wonder if she could ever forgive me?  She can get over it right? Forgive me... I don't want to be crucified.

END



No WITNESS By D. M. Larson (Male Version of Monologue)

I saw it... This terrible thing.  It happened to this kid I don't even like.  And no one knows who did it... Except me.
Do I tell? 

It's between what is right and what will ruin your life.

I don't even like him... He brings it on himself.
Why does he have to be so... Weird?

And if I tell... Everyone will turn against me... I will be like him... An outcast... Invisible.

Is that how it happens... One little thing you do turns you in to a leper? Social leprosy.

The right thing feels so wrong. I know I'm supposed to tell the truth but the truth will not set me free.  The truth will ruin me... Keeping quiet will ruin him... And I don't know if I care.

I guess that's what happened to all those guys who stood up for what was right... Gandhi shot, MLK shot, Jesus crucified... I'm no Jesus.

I wonder if he could ever forgive me?  He can get over it right? Forgive me... I don't want to be crucified.
