For my dramatic monologue I will act out a scene from Marvin's Room, and I need suggestions for a contrasting one!

Go to my website and take a look at "The Wake."  There are 32 monologues and if you like one and want to use it, let me know, give me credit and you may.

Good luck,
~Edd

What are you auditioning for? Is there a time limit? What do you mean when you say you'll be acting out a scene from Marvin's Room?

I ask because I went on countless auditions in (what seems like) a past life. There are many things to consider when choosing your monlougues...

Enlighten us...

Vanessa

If Proboscisbunny married HarveyRabbit, she'd be ProboscisbunnyRabbit.  Oh God!  You can see I've nothing to do tonight.  Sorry . . .

Well, you know, Edd, there’s been a lot of rumors for quite some time now that Vanessa is in fact my lovechild. I wish to dispel those rumors right here and now. You need only compare our faces to see there is absolutely no family resemblance at all. And if you still don’t believe me, just ask Vanessa…she nose.

edd,

It is nice to see what great minds can do when they have nothing to do.

Put a smile on my face.

My son's cat was killed by an American (hit and run) she was called Duchess.  Anyway he cried and cried and my heart was broken.  So off we went again to the Humane Society for another Duchess.  At the time I was not very well, and I came home with TWO WHITE RABBITS.  All the neighbours were asking was I mad and all I could say to them was "I'm on Tablets" I'm on medicine"

Anyway between the jigs and the reels, we all love the two bunnies and they have a very happy life here right now not too far from the log fire in their house which looks like a little log cabin.  They get to run around all morning when the fire is not lit and they just love the Christmas trees.

They are sisters and I have not been able to name them yet, the kids keep changing their minds.  I though Snow and White maybe

Any suggestions Harvey?

They eat

Gourmet rabbit food
  Timothy Hay
and have this lovely ball.  Looks like a rope or twine, but they love it, it's specially for bunnies

Potabasil

Harvey if your not committed, any chance?????????? An Easter wedding would be wonderful
Bunnies with Easter bonnets.I know a milliner in NY called Kokin

Flopsy and Mopsy? Frick and Frack?

Bunnies make great pets. Mine (Nutmeg) is litter box trained has the run of the house. He lets us live with him, actually. You'll understand in time :) Google Rabbittude.

I always thought Christmas Trees weren't good for bunnies. That's why I have a fake white one. I'd look into that...

So I was going to finish Proboscisbunny . And wondered would you be bridesmaid at the wedding if Harvey accepts?  Ed could give the Bunnies away and IMR could be the best man.

Relax about the trees.  They run under them not eat them.  They are real trees

Nutmeg eats everything in reach...books, leather jackets, shoes...

Of course I'll be a bridesmaid...I'll toss alfalfa hay into the air as I walk down the aisle.

Since they're sisters, how about Joan and Jackie Collins? Or pick two of the Andrew sisters' names? or Peppermint and Bon-Bon? Or for heaven's sake, how about Sister and Theresa?

I have the perfect monologue for jaystreet212:

KWAZY WABBIT

A monologue by Members of the Playwrights’ Forum

 
BUNNY:  (After a long SILENCE to collect her thoughts.)  My son's cat was killed by an American . . . hit and run . . .she was called Duchess.  Americans are good at killing.  Anyway he cried and cried and my heart was broken.  So off we went again to the Humane Society for another Duchess.  At the time I was not very well, and I came home with TWO WHITE RABBITS.  All the neighbours were asking was I mad and all I could say to them was "I'm on Tablets. I'm on medicine. I'm on shrooms."

(After a pause to sigh and wipe her eye.)


Anyway between the jigs and the reels, we all love the two bunnies and they have a very happy life here right now not too far from the log fire in their house which looks like a little log cabin--mine looks like a chicken coop.  They get to run around all morning when the fire is not lit because when it's lit they tend to get singed and burned and smell a bit like hassenpfeffer.  
They just love the Christmas trees. 

They are sisters and I have not been able to name them yet, the kids keep changing their mind--and their names.  I thought Snow and White maybe.  Or Pink and Simply Red?  Perhaps the Dixie Chicks?

They eat gourmet rabbit food, lovely hay and have this lovely ball.  Looks like a rope or twine, but they love it, it's specially for bunnies

Maybe I’m going crazy, but an Easter wedding would be wonderful . . . bunnies with Easter bonnets. I know a milliner in NY . . . yellow polka dots.  Flopsy and Mopsy? Frick and Frack?  Wherefore art thou?

Bunnies make great pets. Mine (Nutmeg) is litter box trained . . . has the run of the house. He lets us live with him, actually--pellets and all.  You'll understand in time.  Google quackatude and flying shoes!

(Deviously.)  I always thought Christmas trees weren't good for bunnies.  That's why I have a fake white one--or faux blanc as we like to call it.  I'd look into that.  So I was going to finish and wondered who would be bridesmaid and the best man?  Tweedle Dum or Tweedle Dee.

Relax about the trees.  They run under them not eat them.  They are real trees not faux blancs.  They’ve got bugs to prove it.  Rabbits don’t eat bugs.

Nutmeg eats everything in reach ... books, leather jackets, shoes ... the kids . . . maybe bugs.

Of course I'll be a bridesmaid ... I'll toss alfalfa hay into the air as I walk down the aisle.  Don't ask me why.  I just like alfalfa.  Maybe it's his cowlick. 

Since they're sisters, how about Joan and Jackie Collins? Or pick two of the Andrew sisters' names?  Maybe Boogie and Woogie?  Or Peppermint and Bon-Bon?  Or for heaven's sake, how about Sister and Theresa?

Tiny Tim could be the Minister.   Can you imagine his reading "Tip Toe Through the Tulips?" 

 
It’s time I went back to the hospital.  They don’t let us out for too long.  Besides, they’re watching me.  They’re always watching me. 
 
(She exits toward the sanitarium with a mad glint in her eye.)
 
 

END OF MONOLOGUE

I can't stop laughing and I'm all snowed in here with the two white rabbits.
I better not let them out in the snow cause I will never find them.

You are one brilliant Master

I've read this entire thread three times and I still don't know how it got to this point.

But the monologue is fantastic. And a great collabrative effort on it, as well. Even if some of the authors weren't aware of it at first.

I was concerned.  I saw, in my email, all the posts under this thread and I worried for you all.  I worried that someone who logged on once and posted once, had you all sweating for him trying to find a monologue when I felt that it was fairly certain he'd forget to come back and you'd all be wasting your time.

Then I read.

Never mind.

Carry on.

Paddy (still laughing)

Edd, what a wonderful monologue. Perfectly demented!


And Potabasil, I graciously accept your kind invitation. I’ll put it on my calendar right now. 


And I have the perfect names for your sweet children’s delightful new bunny rabbits. I suggest you call them Alex and Forrest. Both charming names in and of themselves, but when put together become the name of a wonderful character played by the fabulous and celebrated actress Glenn Close.


Must dash…I have something on the stove…

Thank you Harvey Rabbit
In the meantime this is for all contributors to Edd's Monologue

Potabasil

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rppig5VYYlQ

This movie starred one of the Cusack sister's. (as Beatrix Potter) Her father used to be my neighbour and friend in Ireland.

Stay with it for a few mins, then it goes to animation.

Speaking of Animation, my friend is looking for possibly two animators in early Jan, if anyone knows of one, if you do email me privately and I will give you details

I'm so glad you all enjoyed the monologue that you all pretty much wrote yourselves.  While reading all your posts, I realized how beautifully it all connected.  See, there is some truth to the assertion that we are all connected and all we need is a Supreme Editor.

Harvey, that pot of furry dementia you alluded to boiling on your stove has ruined my mid-day snack!  Now I have to go to supper hungry.

My daughter owned two rabbits who we called Mack and Mabel, both girls but they didn't seem to care so neither did we.

Something terrible happened

I don't think the Bunnies are sisters at all

They are doing things girl bunnies don't do, well this is the first time I had bunnies indoors, there is a lot of "carry on" going on in the bunny house

Should I take them to the Vet?

OMG! LOL!

Yes, take them to the vet. Fixing costs a pretty penny, but it helps them live up to 10 years (as opposed to two years). I guess getting nookie off your mind is a life saver!
