Curves - Shayna

Milwaukie, Oregon

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: Shayna directly confronts her audience about her issues with gyms and self-control.

Subject Matter: Weight, Body Image, Working Out, Fitness, Health, Food, Comedy

Note from Playwright: I wrote this piece after joining a gym for the first time in years- I had "somehow" put on about 20 lbs and wanted my body to start feeling better. I was bummed out, I didn't want to be there, and then the woman at the desk pointed to the back and said "there's the access to the Women's Only Gym"---thus, "Curves" was born! This piece is ideal for a woman looking to work out her comedic chops.
