For this one, you have ten seconds to get an answer from the audience: Do you murder your uncle, abstain or take your own life? Matt's note: This is a prologue to THE speech. But it's best presented on its own.
TEN SECOND MONOLOGUE 1 (any gender, late teens to late twenties)
Dear people, give pointers to me.
Kill my uncle? Is that the decree?
He did slay his brother
And then stole my mother.
What kind of child am I to be?
...or not to be...?
