Dramatic Monologue December 12, 2010 - January 15, 2011
Reading and Deliberating
Set up the scene with a quick 1-2 paragraphs then have them deliver a dramatic monologue. For those not clear about a dramatic monologue - is a piece of performed writing that offers great insight into the feelings of the speaker. Not to be confused with a soliloquy, in which the speaker is speaking to themselves. Thus the character in question must be addressing someone else - i.e. other characters or the audience.
Pieces will be judged on the type of scene selected for the delivery, the flow of the monologue and the actual delivery as I read them outloud.
I've made distinguished awards for the top 3 winners, and instead of having stupid "1st place winner" title, I decided to add a little flair to the title for the winner - something that sounds like an actual award - named for Lord Alfred Tennyson - whos "Ulysses" has been consider the first true dramatic monologue,
