LA FIN DU SILENCE - Simone

Sutton, Massachusetts

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                                  

Situation: It is the present in Newburyport, MA in the Editor’s office of Journey Magazine, an internet publication dedicated to publishing the stories of women and young girls who have experienced rape and/or sexual violence. Simone describes for the first time (after twenty-five years) one of the life-long effects of what happened to her.  She was an orphan living with nuns at a Catholic school for gifted, young girls. 

Subject Matter: Rape, Sexual Abuse, Nightmares  

Note from the Playwright:

I wrote the play to expose the lie that survivors of rape can simply "get over" what happened if they try. The monologue, standing alone, can be delivered by a woman 18 or older. Simone comes from France; a French dialect might be useful but is not required.
