           (A banana walks onstage -  a beautiful banana, perfect in every way)

You think Dorian was the only one who could have his own private portrait well .....look at me!....you see me..... a beautiful banana ...........Am I not...perfect?

Is my skin not smooth and brown spot free?  Is the smell of my fruit not delicious and not odoriferous?

Well, this is true EVERY DAY!  Because.....due a special deal I made with the devil himself many years ago.......somewhere there is a horrible ugly deformed and spotted banana......not a photo, because a photo would not -could not! - include the smell that comes from the rotting of my banana flesh!

No, you suspect you know where this REVOLTING and STINKING banana is........ah that's not really true...the fact is........  you know exactly........where it is ....because it is right there on your breakfast table!

(Ecstatic)  Yes!  I am the banana that was there last night!   

I am the banana you dreamed of nibbling on this morning in your Cheerios!  Why is this important - because only beauty is the only thing in life that is important........the only thing worth living for!  

(Deeper voice)   The only thing worth....dying for.....


               (The banana turns to leave, stops, looks back)

And I hope.....this  monologue will....wait for it......I hope this will.....appeal to you.......

Sorry, I can't help it if the writer is completely ....bananas.....

              (The banana shakes its head and peals out.....)

The Picture of Dorian Gray was an amazing piece of literature - click here for more  I hope Oscar Wilde  (wherever he is) forgives me for this monologue.  And for those wondering - no bananas were harmed in the writing of this monologue.
