These 21 monologues for teen actors are wise, witty and full of twists and surprises. Each opens a unique window on either a familiar fairy tale character, an unusual historical figure, or a present-day youngster. There's Snow White's teenage daughter who's shocked to discover that her mom lived with dwarfs and worked as a maid! Or Lizzy Borden confessing her crimes to her last victims, knowing they will never tell. Or the high school girl whose breakup with her boyfriend leads to tragedy. There's also the narrator of the title monologue who can't understand why the victim of a hilarious prank is so upset. This collection of young voices makes for a fun, thought-provoking, and emotionally satisfying experience.
