About the Resource

A linked series of Monologues for classroom use or for public performance.

The park is open for eighteen hours. Eighteen characters occupy the park bench at different times and speak to the audience.

If the resource develops beyond classroom study - there are twenty pages of support notes to help you and your students - then a nineteenth character is added to the mix, together with a PowerPoint display to be used as a backdrop.

There are full notes on the monologues, how to use them in the classroom, how to use them for public performance, notes for students and teacher, additional exercises (i.e. homework!) and worksheets.

There is probably a term's worth of work in this pack.

In all you get 17,000 words on 56 pages (supplied as Word and pdf) plus a PowerPoint.

Suitable for any KS4 / KS5 course which requires character study, performance, acting, devising or for any group which wants to put on a public performance.

It was about a quarter to two. You never know who’s going to answer the door, so you can never quite prepare what you are going to say. And there’s always the chance that you might be wrong at this stage, so you have to be really careful....  It was his mum. When you answer the door at two in the morning and find two coppers on your doorstep, you know they haven’t come to give you a prize for keeping your front lawn tidy.


I mean I’ll say to James “What does Lydia mean when she says this James?”. And he thinks, and he stands, and he thinks, and he sits and he says “What do you think she means, darling?”.


I saw dad quite a lot after he left home then I saw him less and less because he changed jobs and moved. He lives somewhere in Scotland now. I got a card on my birthday and he said to come up and see him sometime. I’d rather Skype.


Could go for a unisex name I suppose. Jordan. Alex. Jamie. Robin. No, not Robin, too Christmassy.


Laura’s a lovely girl. She was in a relationship with someone else so she’s already got two daughters, six and three. Strange names for kids, “six” and “three”.


As one grows older, one learns more and more that things are not as they were, or rather as one perceived them to be. And perhaps sometimes it is the innocence of the child, the simple rather than the complex, which is more to be desired.


And I knew I'd got sugar round my mouth – you can't escape it, can you? - so I got my mirror out and was wiping it off when... I saw it. I saw her.


So, we’ll have a Chinese or something, and a bottle of wine – not too much – and try to get some sleep. Hair at 9.30 in the morning then Fliss is coming round at eleven thirty for the makeup, car at twelve forty five. Church at one. Well… ten past. You’ve got to be late for your own wedding haven’t you? Give Steve something to panic about!
