Mab Lib Monologue

Are you a writer and/or performer looking for inspiration? Write and perform a new monologue using these prompts from Teaching Artist Marissa Kennedy.

  1. Choose a household non-human object – such as a chair, plant, or pet – to recite your monologue to.
  2. Choose from one of these first lines:
    • “So this is where you’ve been hiding…”
    • “All I can say is…”
    • “Well, what happened was…”
    • “Oops…
  3. How did the subject react to what you said? Add a follow-up sentence that responds to your subject’s reaction.
  4. Ask a question if you need help, starting with the question “But..? or “But why…?”
  5. Start your final sentence with “Well, I guess…”
