    Section #2- The Playwright
    Using the assigned play and the Character Biography Questions completed in Section #1 write
    an additional monologue for the character you selected. Remember, a monologue is a set piece
    of speech spoken by only one character. The monologue can be considered an addition to the
    script either within the script or you could imagine a final monologue that is written to come at
    the conclusion of the play. Either way we ask that you feel free to be creative and explore your
    character’s voice as a playwright. You can use the monologue to clarify your character’s point of
    view/experience/wishes/hopes or to defend your character’s point of view as that character- or
    in other creative ways that allow you to practice creating lines that a character from this play
    might speak.
