Monologue Mania Day # 1292 Experimental Theater by Janet S. Tiger (c) Aug. 28, 2017           

                                        Experimental Theater
                                               by Janet S. Tiger  (c) 2017 all rights reserved 

        (In the true spirit of the horror genre, this monologue is best presented on a- you guessed it! - on a dark and stormy night.  In a VERY dark theater, with a spot on the actor, who emerges, dressed When the actor speaks, it might help to sound like, maybe, Vincent Price?)

Yes, my friends......tonight is special.  Tonight you are prepared to be.....served something new.  Something truly....experimental!  You are all the creme de la creme of the theater are the ones who are willing to try something new..........characters that are less embrace the unembraceable!......the macabre.....the frightening.....the deadly.....and, best of don't mind...... messy endings.

           (Signals to the side, smiles.  Lights flash and there are loud noises)

That is why ....if you try to move, you will cannot!  You are strapped in for a ride you will never forget!

          (Takes a doctor's coat and puts on with a flourish)

You must be patient......or perhaps I should say....THE patient!  Because in this theater, the experiment is more than just dramatic............

           (Pulls out a scalpel from a pocket, shakes head, then reaches into another pocket and pulls out a huge knife)

You see, the experiment is on......(maniacal laugh)  YOU!
