Blurbs Feb. 13, 2014 - May 9, 2017

Monologue Mania - Blurbs  by Janet S. Tiger  © 2014-2017  all rights reserved

This page has a (constantly growing) list of all the monologues completed during the first year, second year! (and now beyond). 


As of today, it covers from Feb. 13, 2014 (the start) to  May 9, 2017, Day # 1180

Note -
I sometimes run behind on the days....and the blurbs -okay, sometimes WAY behind on the blurbs!-  but the titles and links are mostly current, and most of them go to the right place!  And right now, I am past three years - and still going strong.  It's like an addiction to writing monologues.

A brief blurb will give you an idea of the piece, and if you click on the title  it will (hopefully!) take you to a page with the complete monologue, sometimes along with some background – and if possible, I will include staging suggestions.  
If the title is not linked, you can still find the monologue by clicking the month you want on the right side of the blog.

My earlier monologues have been tried out, have won prizes, been produced, so there is a charge - if you want a collection that includes my earlier work please check out MONOLOGUEZONE.com or for a lot of my work- www.PlaysByJanetSTiger.com

Way to find a specific title - use the Control F function to search for a specific title - or if you just want to look for roles for men use M (that's - space M space) or for women F (that's space F space) Or if you have trouble, the faster alternative -have a younger person help!
