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.’

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.
