Howdy and welcome back to Unknown Playwrights and Monologue Monday!
This is our second monologue from Josh Weckesser. The previous one is here.
This monologue is from a one-act play entitled It Came from Texas. The summary comes straight from the playwright’s site:
It Came From Texas is the story of a monster that rampages the country side, eating all in it’s path. This intrepid group of gamblers take refuge in a basement, where they do their best to ignore the world. This succeeds only in so much as the Hate Music will allow, not to mention the Female Overmind. A sci-fi fantasy western with a twist (NOTE: The previous statement is false). Really, it’s about a bunch of people pissing a day away, languishing in each other in the way that only a group of people that knows each other too well can languish.
The monologue itself features neurotic Tim dealing with a super-clingy Beth, who still loves her ex, Jonas.
You can find the monologue on the author’s site.
For more about Mr. Weckesser, please check out our other monologue from him.
These are two very different takes on the same material. Hopefully we’ll see more folks using this one.
