Promoting a youth group
A comedy monologue with an offstage voice tells of dealing with pressures from people who don't understand believers
This monologue involves one teen, in everyday clothing. He/she should have a backpack when entering the stage. No special lighting is necessary.
Voice Over should be a teen’s voice, however, an adult voice would work as well.
Sample of script:
Actor (Walks on stage and throws his backpack down on the floor, in frustration. Begins speaking to himself.) Why do people have to be like that? They consider themselves my friends, but there is no way that friends should be treating each other like that!
All I said was that I didn’t want to go drinking with them this weekend. That’s it! They act as though I shot down their very will for living! They need to get real! I’m sick of all the fake attitudes and fake concern they have for me. They really don’t care about me – all they care about is keeping me in check so I don’t make them look bad! It’s really tiring.
Something has to change. I can’t do this thing any longer. I just wish I could get with some friends that understand that there is more to life than just partying and lieing and cheating and stealing and hurting . . .
(pauses), and all the rest of the junk that goes with that kind of life.
