Monologue Mania Day # 1285 On Trial by Janet S. Tiger (c) Aug. 21, 2017        

        Some nice news - The Newest Oldest - a one-act of mine - just got Second Place in the 2017 Script Tease of   New Plays.  The winners will be read on September 22, 2017.  More info soon

                                                               On trial

      (The actor is dressed in formal attire - a robe for a courtroom, something official looking.  Comes to the audience and points a finger, shaking it in anger)

You!  You who have pillaged!  And taken!  And destroyed what was taken!  

       (Whirls around, points again)

(Hissing)  ....You!    You who have existed solely for the joy of the theft from the unwilling and unknowing......You who have twisted and stolen and loved every minute of it!  It is hereby requested that you suffer as you have suffered!  To have all removed from you and not have a say in it!  To be utterly at the whim and fancy of others!

The wish of this court is for you to be......sentenced to unauthorized biography!

        (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

With no time off for a TV reality show!

 I now exit in high dudgeon!  Which is where you should spend the rest of your biased literary life!

          (And now, does really exit to a tabloid finale)
