Hey guys! I have never actually used these forums before, and I hope this one is successful because I know a lot of people have the same problem.
I am a 16 year old female, and I am auditioning for a drama scholarship in September, and one of the components we have to perform is a monologue. This is great because I love to showcase these kind of things except I've never had to pick my own before... I am not very good at the whole 'comedic' genre, and I would really like an emotional one, but I can't find any on the internet that are suitable for sixth form. Please can you help me find a suitable one!!!!

Hi, I'm not sure if you're still looking for monologues but I can think of a few. I've just finished sixth form and part of our course was performing monologues. I would recommend to read the whole play for the monologue you choose as it definitely improves your understanding and the teachers who watch your audition will really see that.
If you would like an emotional and challenging monologue, I would recommend either Mona's monologue from Eight by Ella Hickson or Rachel's monologue from When You Cure Me by Jack Thorne, both are about rape.
Other dramatic monologues I recommend are Beryl's from Confusions by Alan Ayckbourn and Junk by Melvin Burgess.
There's also The Rise and Fall of Little Voice by Jim Cartwright, Colder Than Here by Laura Wade, Blink by Phil Porter and Precious Little Talent by Ella Hickson.
