9780887548284: She Speaks: Monologues for Women

A collection of contemporary Canadian monologues for women, intended for auditions, study or general interest and addressing themes of Adolescence, Body, Childhood Memories, Identity, Mothers, and Passion.

“A monologue must give voice to those who have been silenced. The speaker must urgently need to speak, to proclaim, to persuade, to incite, to inspire, to agitate, to fabricate, to contaminate or whitewash, to justify; the speaker needs approval, or absolution, or acclaim, or worship, or laughter or sympathy. The monologue can only happen if the speaker has an audience. The monologue is ultimately the electric interaction between the audience and the speaker.”
—from the introduction by Judith Thompson

From the Author:

âWhen I wrote my first play, The Crackwalker, I gave each of the characters a monologue, framing the playâand they were all audience addresses. âWho are they talking to?â the actors would ask, in frustration. And I could only reply âthe audience.â I hated the idea of a phony set-up with a social worker, or a psychiatrist, or someone in the âlisteningâ professionsâto justify a long monologue; never explain, the monologue is part of a long theatrical tradition, it is direct, it is intimate. And there is no looking away from it, we must go on the journey of the monologue with the character, even if he or she is breathing fire that burns the air we breathe.â (20111013)
