MONOLOGUE SCRIPTS

FEMALE MONOLOGUE

CAZ: (14 years old. She is upset and slightly reluctant to tell her story) In the end we…agreed that it was the only way we could get the money. I would have…sex ..with this bloke Marcus knew, this bloke would pay the money we needed and then we could get back to normal.

It was horrible. Some old bloke I’d never met before pawing and slobbering all over me. I just kept crying and crying and crying. After the bloke had gone Marcus didn’t say anything. It was like it had never happened.

Then a week later Marcus came home and said that these people wanted more money from him.

MALE MONOLOGUE

Mo is 13, confident and likeable…at least at first. He should initially not seem like someone who fits the stereotype about the kind of person who gets bullied.

MO: I got a new phone at for my birthday….only an a iPhone 7!!! It is totally awesome. I love the way the photos move a bit when you look at them. It’s like Harry Potter! It’s like the best thing in my life…or was until….

Okay, I got these texts about a month ago…nasty texts….saying things, things about me… about my family!

It’s been 2 months now and I just don’t know what to do. My phone is my life! If I tell Mum and Dad then they’ll just freak and take my iPhone away and I can’t not have my phone… I can’t! I just can’t! I’m just going have to put up with it, aren’t I?

What people say

Take a look at how we’ve helped others

Brilliant acting and interaction with the children. The play itself covered puberty in an open, realistic and humorous way which forms a terrific basis for future discussion with the teacher and each other. So much depends on the enthusiasm of the actors and I feel that we were very lucky to have such a talented pair, not only to perform, but to lead the discussions afterwards. They were able to relate to the children without any embarrassment. SUPERB!!

Governor/Teacher

Compared to other companies we have had covering the same content, the actors were more flexible and accommodating to the children’s individual needs. Through their answers and questions, the children were demonstrating a higher level of understanding, empathy and personal safety.
