Monologue Monday

Monologue Monday: Maggie from Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (Williams)

It’s that day of the week and of course it is Monologue Derby here, full of monologues scraped from bowels of Youtube.

This week we’ll feature Tennessee Williams’ Southern-fried Gothic mess known as Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, featuring Maggie the Cat – a woman married to Brick. Brick nurses an injury, doesn’t make love to his wife and is still in love with a dead dude from high school. Maggie has problems.

Here’s Maggie asking her husband why he looks at her “like that.”

I do want to mention how brave these actors are posting their monologues on Youtube for everyone to see.

  1. I’d like seeing a longer monologue from Actor A. Based on this small bit, I’d be happy to cast her. I found her work the most natural, believable, and interesting. Actor D would be my second choice. Her portrayal was the kind I’d expect to see in that role; she’d be a shoo-in, has the usual Tennessee Williams quality, even without the standard issue southern drawl.

    1. A did start earlier but I cued her monologue up to the same starting point as everyone else, and yes she seems very natural and believeable. One of my other friends chose D. D has a live audience. That changes so much. It can get very subjective. Thanks for commenting!
