I've written a screenplay that is a series of monologues and songs ; they form this sort of human tapestry across time and place. The form is strange, but I find it really fascinating.
...my belief in the sacrament of the Eucharist is simple: without touch, God is a monologue, an idea, a philosophy; he must touch and be touched, the tongue on flesh, and that touch is the result of the monologues, the idea, the philosophies which led to faith; but in the instant of the touch there is no place for thinking, for talking; the silent touch affirms all that, and goes deeper: it affirms the mysteries of love and mortality.andre dubus
I am the kind of person that wants to get up in front of crowds of strangers and perform monologues. To each their own.
'Nashville' songs and country music have always been about story telling and about the heart and confessionals . They're monologues.
Most conversations are simply monologues delivered in the presence of a witness .
The obvious mechanical convenience of monologues in general, quite apart from link monologues, is their availability in filling time. On the whole the link monologue is less widely employed for this purpose than the entrance monologues.
Although monologues are solo-voiced, in their theatrical representation there is a need for a more dialogical reality , with a real or imaginary “listener” to whom monologue is directed. In this kind of work, monologue is not the product of one person alone, but is processed and shaped within and by the group, which is a political act in itself.
There is no such thing as conversation . It is an illusion . There are intersecting monologues, that is all.

Anything is possible on a train : a great meal, a binge, a visit from card players, an intrigue, a good night's sleep , and strangers' monologues framed like Russian short stories.
In role based stories monologues are role based stories addressed to imaginary and/or actual listneres (on stage and in the audience)
monologues, in which one person does all the talking, are longer speeches than participants have expressed so far. This does not mean that a monologue expresses only one point of view, its interest lies in the variety of perspectives that the speaker may present as part of the argument . monologues are valuable components in the devising process and can serve as introduction, reflections and/or as links between scenes.
