MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: Frank, a confident, good looking 20 yr old college student feels more deeply than he appears to. Frank confesses to a young woman (whom he suspects is about to commit suicide) that she unwittingly saved his life on the night he was about to end it all.

Subject Matter: Suicide, Numbness, Love, Purpose, Redemption

Note from Playwright: Sometimes the world (and people) can bring you down, and you can become deeply sad, even suicidal. When this happens, don't forget the special and unique person you are. The most important thing in the world is for you to love and cherish yourself, especially when no one else does.

Supplemental Information: The full one-act play SPITTING DAISIES is available to read onscreen at MonologueBank.
