The Any Key – Monologues for Men

monologues for men


Bad things happen to everyone. Sometimes it’s your fault, and sometimes it isn’t. Sometimes you can blame other people for your problems and sometimes you just can’t. People tend to ignore the warning signs in life, and then bad things happen that they should have see coming. But what if there was a magical key that we could push, that would make it all unhappen so we could do it over?

In the hut – funny monologues for men

funny monolgues for men


‘ In the Hut’ is a humorous look at the life of an average Irish bus driver and ticket inspector and the colorful characters that work on and use the bus. From the  ‘lady of the night’ found changing out of her ‘work clothes’ upstairs on the bus to the terrifying ‘three minute man’ who stalks the aisles of the bus looking for bus drivers and inspectors ‘on the take,’ this monologue will have the audience giggling in their seats.  The play is set in Ireland and the UK, but can easily be adapted for any country in the world. The play is also short with a minimal set and ideal for a one act play festival for a proficient single male actor.
