100 Monologues – Monologue #45: You’re Not You Anymore

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 “You’re Not You Anymore” 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: #45 You’re Not You Anymore

What happened to you? I barely recognize you anymore. You used to be this guy who was such a night owl, who stayed up late playing guitar and not caring about what anyone thought. But ever since you started dating Sarah, it’s like you’ve turned into this entirely different person. All you do is worry about what other people think. And you’ve stopped making music. It’s like the two things that really defined you, that made you who you were, have just completely disappeared, just vanished. And worst of all, I feel like I’ve lost a close friend. Because I barely recognize you anymore. I don’t know who you’ve become.
