Monologues

Sarah often starts her plays by writing monologues from the perspective of a character at a particular moment in time. Some of these make it to the final product, but others are cut along the way. The ones that have made it seem to have gone down really well with audiences. Sarah also writes one-off bespoke monologues.

Quite a few of Sarah’s monologues have been successful audition pieces – below, please find a few that you are welcome to use. However if you are looking for something in particular, feel free to get in touch at sarah@sarahhenley.co.uk.
