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 “Unmotivated” monologue. 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: #24 Unmotivated
I just don’t know anymore. I used to have passions. I loved making my own clothes. I was obsessed with fashion and design. But then one day it left me. I woke up uninterested and unmotivated. And that was that. I became an expert at doing nothing. Sitting and watching TV. Sleeping. I dunno….everything just seems uninteresting and uninspiring. I hope I get over this whatever it is. I don’t want to be a zombie, passively living life. I want to actually live life. I don’t want to feel like I’m sitting back, watching someone else’s life unfold before my very eyes.
