CARMEN - I Should Have Worn It Down

Author Diana Howie
Houston, Texas

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary

Situation: Carmen is putting on her make-up for the day, not happy with what happened to her last night (ignored at a bar). At some point, she talks to the audience as if a roommate is there watching her as she paints her face, preparing optimistically for a better day.

Subject Matter: Identity, Appearance, Immigrant Experience

Note from Playwright: I was struck by a naturally beautiful woman I knew who absolutely transformed herself every morning into someone who looked totally different than the woman who went to bed at night. I asked her why.
