TEEN READING PROGRAM - Marnie

Author Judith Pratt
Ithaca, New York

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Contemporary                                

Situation: Marnie's mother has signed her up for a wack summer reading club, reading Literature. She is now so past bored it's not even funny. Until she finds a book about hypnosis and drugs.

Subject Matter: Teenager, Hatred of Reading, Googling, Boredom

Note from Playwright: I originally wrote this piece for a group staging plays in an unusual house. The house had a wonderful library room. I love library rooms, but I know that many people do not love them. And that forcing people to read Literature is counterproductive and stupid! So I wrote TEEN READING PROGRAM.

Supplemental Information: Read by my playwrights' group in 2010 and at Vestige Theatre, Austin TX, 2006.
