Fully Present - Jennifer

Haverhill, Massachusetts

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Jennifer has been looking forward to a blind date with Will.
 When he arrives she struggles mightily to be present with him. The seductive pull of her addiction to Facebook and her friends and worker calls on her cell disrupt her ability to focus on the budding relationship in front of her. She thinks she is able to be “fully present,” but she is not.

Time: Present 

Situation: A high top at a bar. A blind date. 

Subject Matter: Blind Date, Dating, Distraction (Cellphone and Facebook) 

Note from the Playwright:

Device distraction is rampant. It takes a certain effort to remain in the moment, fully present and attentive to the actual person one is with. I wanted to highlight this liability in all of us and our delusion that we are present, when we are not.
