DROP DEAD JULIET – Juliet confronts the audience about a better story than “Romeo and Juliet.” Comedic Monologue for Teen Female. 1 Min.
Juliet: Did I say Quit? Did anyone say quit? I’m not quitting. I just want a better story. More love. Less death.
I’m sure we can figure out a better story if we just have a little good will, hmmm? Good will? Thank you for writing in a dagger. I’m sure it’s going to come in handy.
Oh yes I can. You think of us and we’re there. You think we don’t talk to each other when you’re not around? You think we don’t compare plots? I’m not just words on a page, this is my life.
Maybe that works on messengers, servants and spear-carriers, but you can’t forget a major character and you know it. We just stick in your head until you have to get us out. If you ever want to write another play again, it’s time for another draft.
I will personally tell every single character what you’re going to do to them. I will make a guest appearance in every play you ever write. I will haunt your dreams until you cannot write another word.
