Lady T – one act drama for teens and students

one act drama for teens


T is a young student, busy co-directing a play with her friend, Skylar for her acting class. For as long as T can remember, there has been a character, whom she knows as “Shadow” in her life. Only T can see Shadow. T admits to herself that Shadow is someone that she has created out of her own imagination, to help her get through life, and that in order to move on with her own life, she will have to let him go. But how easy is it to let a piece of you go for good?

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?
