Backfired (a monologue)

    This monologue is so incredibly tense, gritty, scary, yet beautiful in parts, as Anna tells of her life and loves.
    She steals away to meet the boy of her dreams, a car backfires and quickly her whole world has changed.
    A powerful monologue on a subject that should never exist and should never have to be written about.

    An incredibly powerful monologue that takes you into the murder that happens to endless children as mass shootings in schools continue.

    Riveting storytelling that leads us in unsuspecting steps toward a very unexpected denouement! Beautiful!
