Tour Guide
A frustrated tour guide must explain ground zero to tourists. Written for a mid 20s male it can be performed by anyone.

The Kid
A child plays “9-11”. May be performed by either gender.

Additional monologues:

Young Franklin – A 17 year old male must tell his therapist about living through 9-11.

News Reporter – Perhaps a little too focused on her career. Either gender, any age.

Hooker – A 20s – 30s female has trouble with a client.

Robbie – A 30s – 50s male is more concerned with his report that evacuating the twin towers.

Mortician – A 30s – 50s male profited in an uncomfotable way.

Cop – 20s – 40s, either gender. Commercialization hits at inappropriate times.

Minister – A 30s – 60s male has an apocalyptic  interpretation of 9-11. 

Paul(a) – Either gender. Airport security is never fun.

Deli Owner – 20s – 50s Indian male. Racism and ignorance go hand in hand.

Coach – 30s – 50s, written as a male but potentially could be female. Not all motivation is good.

Homeless – A 20s – 50s male yells at a subway car about disingenuous charity.

Old Franklin – Franklin, now 64, recalls 9-11 50 years later.
