Monologue Monday

Monologue Monday: Crazy by Mindy Jones

What is it with mental illness and monologues? So  many seem to be about “crazy” people. We’ve even featured at least one explicitly about mental illness. And there have been others that hint at it, as well.

Whatever the reason, this one entitled Crazy by Mindy Jones. I can’t find much information about the author. It’s about a woman who [maybe] set fire to her home, killing her two kids. Or she just neglected to “hide” all the matches. Fun stuff.

Meh.

Here’s a link to the monologue in that bastion of knowledge known as Yahoo Answers.

Someone is asking what play it’s from and someone else gave this hilarious answer:

Mr. Z seems cool.

The monologue was written for “Woman” but that didn’t stop a few fellas from trying.

AND HOLY MACARONI!!! There are 67 monologues!!! Edit: #62 is in Zulu!

What do you think? Is it a good monologue? Which actor is most arson-y?
