WRITING: Monologues by Jim Chevallier

I get the most feedback on teen monologues, but those offered here range from children to seniors. As always, actors are free to use any individual monologues here for auditions or performance, as long as you credit the author [that'd be ME]. For shows using ten or more of these together, please contact me about rights. No reprints or other use for profit, please, unless prior written authorization is obtained.

And I'm ALWAYS glad to get feedback!

THE MAN WITH TWO HEADS AND HIS FRIENDS FROM THE FAIR
Monologues inspired by French 18th century fairs

Eighteenth century Parisians loved to go to the fairs, and see... the man with two heads, rope dancers, the strong woman, tumblers, a "turner". These are some of those who speak in this playful collection of monologues, along with the inventor of an automaton, the mother of a "monster", and various presenters of other exhibits.

AVAILABLE

and as a NOOK eBOOK
