Insane Person Monologue Female

    Hi!

    I need a monologue from a published play about a woman going crazy. It can be comedic or dramatic, though I'd prefer a dramatic one. Any suggestions?

    Thank you!

    Banana's taxi monologue from John Guare's "House of Blue Leaves". You might also be able to cobble together a monologue from some of her other lines. Great sad/funny character.

    Hi Jordan,
    The play "Nuts" (or nutz)  has a really killer monologue for a woman and you might also look at "The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man in The Moon Marigolds"

    If you're looking for a classic piece the Lady M speech from MacBeth.

    I hope this helps,

    Mack

    Maybe have a look at some of the mother's monologues in Long Day's Journey Into Night by Eugene O'Neil

    Laughing Wilde by Christopher Durang has a bunch of speeches you could use.

    I once did a monologue from Tina Howe's Painting Churches about melting crayons on a radiator and flushing food down a toilet.

    Talk Radio by Eric Bogosian has some good stuff.
