Write a one-page monologue (a speech by one character, often used to reveal something about themselves). Explain the characters and setting as we saw in the examples in class (Waiting for Godot and A Raisin in the Sun). It can be as sparse or as detailed and directed as you want. Feel free to give stage directions in parentheses, too, if you’d like to emphasize what the character is doing or feeling. Think about how to take the most advantage of the performance aspect of drama. In other words, why is it important that your monologue is drama as opposed to poetry, fiction, or even film or TV? What will make it come to life on the stage?
