Heartless? - Wendy

New York, New York

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: Wendy is sitting in a Starbucks in New York City, when she notices a woman with a lot of shopping bags who looks like she might be dead. Wendy doesn't know quite what to do because she feels the woman might just be sleeping. In this monologue we discover what Wendy finally does do.

Subject Matter: Death, Theft, Starbucks, Poor, Unemployed, Desperate

Note from Playwright: The beginning of this monologue actually happened to me one day while I was in a crowded Starbucks in Manhattan. I saw a wealthy looking woman who looked like she might be dead. I was aware how no one else even noticed her. I didn't know if I should call the manager because she might have just been sleeping. I also thought how easy it would have been to steal her pocketbook and bags (whether she was dead or sleeping). It triggered the thought for this monologue that originally started out as a short play until I realized it would work better as just a monologue.

This monologue was originally published in Monologues For All Auditions (And How To Prepare For It!) by Smith and Kraus.
