Stop Kiss
Audition Monologues

Please prepare one of the following monologues to audition with.

PETER Monologue from Scene Twenty:
You got a card from your old class at Friends. See, there’s Matthew and Sophia and
Emily – your favorite, the anti-Christ. She writes, “I hope you feel bitter and come bark
soon.” I see your replacement is letting her spelling skills slip. (Sara tentatively takes the
card in her hand.) Hey! Look at you.
I’ve been talking to Jenny and Steve a lot, keeping them updated. Jenny’s been letting
everyone know what’s going on. Margaret’s called, Jamie, Lisa – it’s frustrating for them not
to be able to see you. They picture the worst, all they have are the images in their heads
from reading newspaper articles. It’ll be better for them when they can see you.
The doctor says we can move you soon. Your parents and I have been talking. I agree
that you should stay with them after you get out of rehab. You’re welcome to stay at our old
place, of course, if you want to, I would take off from work so that I could – I’m going to take
off from work anyway. (Pause.) Just because you’re coming back home I’m not going to act
like everything is going to be the way it was. I know you went to New York because you
wanted to change things. (He touches her face.) You do want to go home – (Water drops
from Sara’s eyes.) Don’t you?

CALLIE Monologue from Scene Six:
We didn’t know he was there. Until he said something, “Hey, save some of that for
me.” Sara told him to leave us alone. I couldn’t believe she – then he offered to pay us. He
said he’d give us 50 bucks if we went to a motel with him and let him watch. He said we
could dry hump or whatever we like to do – turns him on just to see it. I grabbed her arm
and started walking away. He came after us, called us fucking dykes – pussy-eating dykes.
Sara told him to fuck off. I couldn’t believe – he came up and punched her in the back, then
he grabbed her and pulled her away. I yelled for someone to call the police. He pushed her
against the building and started banging her head against the building. He told her to watch
her cunt-licking mouth. But he has his hand over her jaw, she couldn’t – she just made these
mangled – she was trying to breathe. I came up behind him and grabbed his hair – he
turned around and punched me in the stomach. I threw up, it got on him. Sara tried to get
away but he grabbed her and started banging her head against his knee. I tried to hold his
arms back but he was stronger – he knocked her out. He pushed me to the ground and
started kicking me. Someone yelled something – “cops are coming” – and he took off in the
opposite direction. West. He was limping. He hurt his knee. (She looks at Det. Cole.) That’s
what happened
