Stone Cold Sober – a monologue for a young actor

monologue for a young actor


A one page monologue for a young actor about how it is to grow up with a father who is an alcoholic and continually going in and out of rehab all the time. The father is now seriously ill because of his drinking and this monologue is the final plea from a daughter to a father to stay sober, just so that they can have a little more time together. A great monologue that, although written with a female in mind could be used by either a male or female actor as a short audition piece for drama school or college.

An original monologue from Macee’s latest play “Stone Cold Sober” was selected by Smith and Kraus Publishing for print in their annual anthology series: “The Best Women’s Stage Monologues of 2017.

Stuffed Panda – a monologue about alcoholism

monologue about alcoholism


A monologue about alcoholism for a single male or female actor. Riley is waiting in line and notices a father and daughter in the line in front. The father is being all goofy and the daughter is at that stage where she’s just totally embarrassed to even have her father with her. He secretly takes a panda and hides it behind his back as she tries to see what he’s doing.

They leave with the panda and Riley decides to call her/his dad. He answers but soon falls down and Riley realises it’s not the first time he’s fallen down, too drunk to stand, and that Riley was never that child with the panda and never would be.

A sad monologue about growing up with a parent who is an alcoholic.
