A Cry Headache and a Strong Taste for Bacon - Rori

Roswell, Georgia

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Present                                 

Situation: After spending her entire day searching for her missing fiancée, Rori breaks down in a Waffle House parking lot. She goes inside, eats a greasy meal to swallow her feelings, and pays -- only to have her fiancée walk in. The "read you the riot act" speech pours right on out of her.

Subject Matter: Young Love, Heartbreak, Splitting Up, Missing Person, Rant, Confrontation

Note from Playwright: This piece started as a desire to make a monologue cycle – think song cycle but monologues instead of solo songs – and grew out of the need to have a monologue be so relentless that it just goes and goes.
