Greater Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

PLAY DESCRIPTION

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: Sad, depressed GIRL, 19, explains why she spit daisies in her boyfriend’s face, after she found out he was cheating on her. Her monologue is in response to an intimate story she has just heard from a guy who has been "secretly" following her for the past few months. She seeks to share her intimate story with him, because he shared his intimate story with her.

Subject Matter: Break-up, Sadness, Individuality, Resilience

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 ten-minute play SPITTING DAISIES is available to read onscreen at MonologueBank.
