Monologue Monday

Monologue Monday: Coffee Table (Joseph Arnone)

Hello everyone!!! We’re back and this Monday it’s Joseph Arnone‘s Coffee Table.

Coffee table made of old railroad ties. Yes!!!

The monologue is incredibly straightforward. basically, Melanie is a patient in the mental ward of the hospital – and she can totally see the coffee table come to life (as one does).

I like this because it’s good without exploiting mental illness. The author is top notch. We profiled his other monologue Rather Be a Man here.

The monologue itself can be found here:

I’ve noticed that a lot of non-native English speakers have chosen it, too.

Below is a choice selection of Youtube monologues. Who do you think “brought it?” Good work everyone!!!

  1. There are a few women here who understand something about mental illness. A tough choice, but I think E is my first pick. There were others. Maybe Z.
