The monologues must be from this link:
Select two contrasting monologues - two that are very different from each other - one comedy, one dramatic - or two with very different characters. For example, the character in one monologue is good, kind and innocent and the character in the other one is evil or angry or upset.
Post the names of two monologues you like the best. Answer the following questions about these two monologues:
Why do you like the monologues?
Who is the main character of each monologue?
What is the character like?
Where is the character (the setting/place it is taking place)?
Why is the character saying what they are saying in the monologue? (What's their motivation?)
How did the character get to the point they are now? (what is their background? where did they come from? why are they behaving the way they do?)
Is the monologue from a play? If so, read the play and write about what you learned about the character from the play.
Post in the comments below your answers to the questions above.
