About the Monologues

The monologues are mainly taken from my play, my screenplay, and my novels (both published and in development).  Some are written specifically for this project.

Each monologue includes:
• character description
• background information and context
• approximate length

Note: These monologues are eligible for competitions and conferences, because they are all included in Betsy Franco's scripts, "Metamorphosis, Junior Year", and "Irrepressible."
