bride and Seek – Short Monologue for a Woman

monologue for a woman


It’s your wedding day and as a bit of fun, everyone gets together to play a game of hide and seek. The house is very large with many rooms, some that haven’t had anybody in them for years. Perfect. There’s a large chest hidden in the corner of the room, big enough for you to hide in. So you do. The lid’s a little heavy and you can’t lift it up yourself to get out again, but it doesn’t matter, because when they find you, you will have won the game! It’s just that – it’s been some time and they still haven’t found you. It’s clear. You’ve won. But… where are they? Eerie monologue for  a woman, based on the English folk tale, ‘The Mistletoe Bough.’
