BRIDE AND SEEK – SHORT 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.’

LADY KILLERS – MONOLOGUES BY WOMEN WHO KILL

In this set of four monologues by women who kill, the author allows us to meet four female killers or murderers, each who kills or has killed for different reasons – for one, it’s a job, the second for revenge and the third, to save her children from a lifetime of potential pain. The last is a girl who is simply tired of women being seen as the weaker sex. It is traditionally men who are seen as the harsher sex in modern society and thus it is with fascination that people view female killers, almost as women who are going against the grain of being female, as it were. But, as the monologues point out, women, like men are just as different from each other and their motivations, remain human. But not always pure….

These monologues as as amazing as they are disturbing – a view into the psyche of the female killer.

PLEASE NOTE: Lady Killers was written as a set of 3 monologues, with the author making the fourth monologue available as an addendum to the script, tagged at the end of it.
