Stranded: Views from Quarantine (a monologue play)

Thank you for your interest in Stranded! This play is no longer available for performance, but check out the plays of our amazing playwrights listed below.

Stranded was originally created in response to the rapidly changing school theater environment,  on the fly by our amazing playwrights.

Here are some guidelines we gave our playwrights. Bonus: Feel to use this or adapt it as a playwriting exercise. And, if you want, include them as part of the play.

—All monologues are delivered from passengers of a quarantined cruise ship.

—In the spirit of a bake-off, we’ve offered the ingredients below. We challenge you to include one of these (or more) in your monologue.

  1. A missing watch
  2. A nurse with an empty stomach
  3. An expired prescription
  4. A marriage proposal
  5. A reformed thief
  6. An exit strategy
  7. An unusual smell
  8. A plea for forgiveness

—Monologue should be 2-3 minutes in length. As you’ll see some playwrights took liberties with length, perspective, character, and form—which is part of the fun!

How do you use / perform a virtual monologue play ?
