14 short monologues. Following the success of The Sieve, this second book of monologues by Heather Stephens with thought provoking and layered subject matter is equally useful for junior acting examinations and drama festivals. The Cabbage monologues were originally written for the 8 – 14 year age range but have been used by adult actors for audition and performance pieces. The Aberfan slag-heap disaster issues are graphically confronted in ‘Aberfan Prophecy’ and ‘The Surviving Twin’ while humorous perceptions of life are observed by young people in ‘The Tap Dancer’ and ‘Cabbage’.
Other pieces include: ‘The Dinner Party Guest’, ‘Nine Lives’, and a new adaptation of Robert Browning’s well-known poem ‘The Pied Piper’ seen through the eyes of the crippled child.
