Failure of the 4.0 - Cadence

Windsor Hills, California

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: Cadence is planning to embark on a senior ditch day adventure of a lifetime. Her motivation is the discovery that even though she has focused all of her academic efforts on getting straight A's, the college of her choice wants her to write an essay describing the things that make her who she is "outside of the classroom." Through this inquiry process, while being prodded by her slacker step-brother, she decides to throw caution to the wind and comes up with a three-part plan for what she calls "Mission: Get a Life."

Subject Matter: Teens, Adventures, College, Sibling Rivalry, Peer Pressure, Grades, Over-achievement

Note from Playwright: I was inspired to write this piece for an acting series focused on teenage girl monologues.
