August/September 2022 Monologue for INTERMEDIATES

Hey Housemates, 

Included below, is a monologue for the INTERMEDIATE CLASS ONLY

NOTE:

- Deadline is the 5th of September 2022 

- To submit, upload your monologue to your YouTube channel and make it UNLISTED (not private), then send the link to us via email (actorsplayhousecast@gmail.com).


MONOLOGUE:


Like Dreaming, Backwards is a series of monologues and scenes about the suicide of a young college student named Nell. Leah is Nell's mother. The play also includes monologues from an acquaintance, Yale, and her close friend, Natalie.


LEAH:

She had chronic depression, ever since she was twelve. Her father had depression, too. And her sister. And I was on antidepressants for a while, when I was her age. She was very high-functioning. She went years without any real incidents. She had control of it when she was in high school. And then, all of a sudden, things just... fell apart. She... spiraled.

I asked her to move back home, but she said no, over and over again. She was hospitalized last summer. But I really thought that she'd get past it. I thought, "It's just a matter of time before she finds the right medicine, or the right therapist... and things will go back to normal."

That day, we'd made plans to have breakfast. I called her, but she didn't answer her phone. I thought she'd turned it off and slept late, so I went to her apartment and knocked on her door. It wasn't locked. I went in, and... I found her lying on the floor in the kitchen...

Why didn't she come to me? I would have done anything for her. Anything. Didn't she know that?

HOW TO IMPRESS THE CASTING DIRECTORS

As actors, it can be nerve-wracking to walk into the audition room and perform in front of total strangers. These people get to decide if you have a shot at booking the job, so like it or not, you will definitely get nervous. 

Some actors allow their nerves get in the way of their performance, while others begin to act out of character. 

The casting directors already know that you are nervous so they understand, but beyond that, they want to see that even with the nerves, you are confident in your talent and your performance. 
The important thing is not just to know the lines and movements, but to leave a good and memorable impression.

Here are 20 of the most impactful and effective tips that will help you nail your auditions and book more work:
