Go Jump in a Lake - Sam

Port Jervis, New York

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: After calling their ex asking to meet with them, Sam appears late, and soaking wet. They have a lot to say, and trouble saying it- not at all helped by the strange situation they went through to get there.

Subject Matter: STD, Chlamydia, Relationships, Break Up, Wistfulness, Water, Lakes

Note from Playwright: I like the potential a monologue has to surprise, and what an actor gets to do with that. The more times a monologue changes direction or an actor changes intentions, the more interesting the performance.
