Monologue Choice #1

MADELINE
I never should have let him study in London.
I never should have let him go so far from home.
He was too young.
Much too young to go so far from home.
I should have made him wait for a year.
I should have been more firm.
I should have said no.
I should have just said
No, no, no you cannot go!”
Oh God.
Why didn’t I say that…?
(Pause.)
And why did I choose Pan Am over Delta?
There were two boxes on the application form!
Why didn’t I
check
the box
for Delta?

Monologue Choice #2

BILL
What do you say to the sales clerk?
What do you say to the 16 year old school girl
standing behind the counter at JC Penny’s
who smiles at you and asks
“Why are you returning the sweater, sir?”
Do you tell her?
What do you say?
I just looked at her.
I could tell it was her first job.
Her face was round and soft.
Her hands were still chubby, like a child’s.
What do you say to someone so young and innocent?
“This was for my son, but he died?”
“He was blown to bits by a bomb?”
“The plane he was taking home for Christmas…crashed?”
What do you say?
