Two Shades Away

In this monologue, Melanie is trying to come to terms with who she is and what her true calling is meant to be.

MELANIE: You ever feel like you are two shades away from the life you’re supposed to be living?  (pause.) I’m there.  Sometimes I’ll look back, like right now—usually when shit hits the fan and I think about my past and where I went off track; try to point out the place in my mind, where it began cause, I know I was on the right path and something happened along the way that kind of bumped me over a bit and here I am; wondering if I add up, wondering if I am ever going to get back on the right track again.

Two Shades Away

In this one-act play, Melanie has been doubting herself for far too long…her good friend Charla makes her realize the importance of following her dreams.
