100 Monologues is a project where I’m writing monologue scripts, performing, and filming the pieces. Since I’m beginning to dabble in acting, the project is meant as a means for me to acquire more acting experience where I can work on refining my craft. You can find out more about the project here.
Below is the script from the “I Love You” monologue. The script isn’t exact to my performance above, but my performance is based on it. If you’re a student who would like to perform this monologue for class, just make sure you credit me, Maggie Coyle, as the author. For any other use of the script, please contact me.
100 Monologues: #10 I love you
I remember how miserable I was before I met you. I was never able to stay with anyone for longer than a couple of weeks. I don’t know…I just think all the other men got tired of me really easily. And every time one of them would dump me, I would spend hours and hours, mourning my loss. Those moments seemed like such a waste of time. But now I know that every loss, every failed relationship, was just bringing me one step closer to you.
And now I’m truly happy. I can smile freely, contently, and happily. Thank you. You made me realize that love can exist, that it does exist. And I love you.
