Monologues for Young Women Contemporary Female Roles
Mother Daughter Monologues from plays and stand-alone monologues.
This collection of modern contemporary monologues for young women features accomplished scripts written by professional playwrights from several countries.
The thirty monologues in this volume reflect modern contemporary relationships of mothers and daughters mainly from different areas of USA, with a few pieces from Canada, South Africa, and the UK. Emotional journeys of admiration, loneliness, envy, disdain, impatience, alienation, devotion and, frequently, love.
Some memorable lines:
" I said that I’m sorry. Just tell me what I need to do to get my daughter back. "
" I want to stick a chastity belt on her for at least another year. "
" My womanhood whispers back from places I only touch in the dark of night. Odysseus’ hands become sweet-kisses. "
