GRAY MATTERS – SHORT FUNNY MONOLOGUE FOR A MALE ACTOR
In this short funny monologue written for a single male actor, the headquarters of THE BRAIN are occupied by a single young man, all dressed in gray, whose job it is to guide a typical young guy’s BODY through his days and nights. The young man, of course, is all knowing (and a know it all!) and takes his job very seriously from reminding him how many brain cells he has just lost with his recent alcohol binge to the name of the girl he met the other day. All in a day’s work for a busy know it all brain! A funny monologue idea for high school or college drama class.
