Hello one and all, loyal readers and newcomers!!!
As you know, it is nearly Valentine’s Day and for us here at Unknown Playwrights, that means a Valentine’s Day monologue!
This week’s monologues comes from Annie Eliot. It also comes from 1892.
The monologues come from a one-act play.
The basic joke behind the play is that Elinor (a “past her due date” old maid) and Letty (her sprightly niece) both think a Valentine’s Day card is for them. It’s fine light-hearted comedy.
In fact, you may read the entire play here.
We will discuss and analyze this play later in the week in a special Valentine’s Day post.
But for now let’s see what we have in the way of monologues. Here is the aunt, Elinor:
AND…apparently spinster maids on Valentine’s Day aren’t very popuar because we have way more Letty monologues than Elinor. Sorry, Elinor….
And that’s it for this week’s monologues – come back on Thursday when we’ll study this play more in depth AND come back Monday for more monologues!!!
