Rabbit Hole Women's Audition Monologues

WOMEN’S AUDITION-These monologues are attached below if you'd like to print them off. 

CHOICE #1-NAT MONOLOGUE

NAT

“Do you remember Maureen Bailey?  Well, I couldn’t get rid of her after your brother passed away.  Always at the house.  Always checking on me.  Eatin’ up the cinnamon buns Uncle Jimmy brought me.  I never had a moment to myself.  And of course it was nice, I guess, but it didn’t feel like it was about me.  It just felt like she had nothing else to do.  Like consoling me became her hobby.  Something to fill up her day.  And finally in the middle of coffee one afternoon, I said ‘Maureen, why are you here all the time?’  She said, ‘I want to be there for you, Nat, I want to share in your grief.’  And so I said, ‘Well it’s not working.  I seem to have it all to myself still.  You plant your fat ass in that chair every frickin’ day and suck up all my coffee, and I don’t see you leaving with any of this grief you’re allegedly sharing with me.  In fact, the only thing you do take outta here are my cinnamon buns.’  So I never saw her again obviously.  Which was too bad actually, because she was the only one willing to talk about Arthur.” 

CHOICE #2-IZZY MONOLOGUE

IZZY

(Izzy is talking to Howie and asking why her sister Becca is mad at her)

“So it’s just the baby then.  The fact that I’m having a baby.  She thinks I can’t do it, right?  I’m not cut out to be a good mother?  I know I’ve been a screw-up, but people get their act together.  And maybe I’m not as organized as Becca, or homey, or whatever…but I’m a capable person who can raise a child, and look after it and protect it.  I resent the feeling I get from her, and you too sometimes, honestly, that I don’t deserve the baby.  Or that I’m not mature enough, or smart enough or something, to take care of it.  I mean, my god, if my mother could do it, how hard could it be?”

CHOICE #3-BECCA MONOLOGUE

BECCA

(Becca and Howie are fighting about Danny.  Becca has just accidentally taped over a videotape of Danny and Howie and Howie is furious with her)

“Do you really not know me, Howie?  Do you really not know how utterly impossible that would be?  To erase him?  No matter how many things I give to charity, or how many art projects I box up, do you really think I don’t see him every second of every day?  And okay, I’m trying to make things a little easier on myself by hiding some of the photos, and giving away the clothes, but that does not mean I’m trying to erase him.  That tape was an accident.  And believe me, I will beat myself up about it forever, I’m sure.  Like everything else that I could’ve prevented but didn’t.”
