Comedic female monologue for a women in her 20s to 30s. Written by William Missouri Downs.
This monologue really tickled my funny bone.
A woman about to have a quickie with a stranger she just met let him know that she wants more. She then describes the journey that she’d like their relationship to take in terms of the type of pulp fiction romance novel that she reads. What really made me laugh was how she talks about a deep love where she is cheating on the guy and how they raise their real children and loved children together. The way it was constructed where you hear about one affair, the details of which you’ll have to read the monologue to get but it is absolutely hilarious, and then it is conflated into multiple affairs but she will only learn about when she’s talking about how they lived a happy life together where they raise their children and love children. What I really love about the comedic handling here is with the simple selection of a plural noun “children” you immediately come to realize that the example affair is just one that she had enough they got over through their great love.
That’s just one example of the incredibly economical comedic gold they can process this monologue. This description is actually longer than a monologue so definitely head over and read it.
