Monologue for TS

Anne of Green Gables-Monologue


Hello, my name is Anne Shirley, but please calls me Cordelia. I think Cordelia is a much better name for me, don’t you think? But if you must call me Anne, please call me Anne spelled with an “e” at the end. I am truly honoured and excited to be going to Green Gables with Mr Cuthbert. I feel I’m the most fortunate girl in the whole universe… or at least in the whole dominion of Canada. Oh I do hope Mr Cuthbert comes for me. If he doesn’t I’ll climb that big cherry tree down the tracks and spend the night in it. I know I’m not a boy but I can climb all the same. And I wouldn’t be the least bit afraid. I’d pretend the blossoms in the moonlight were columns in a castle. And oh just look at that tree over there, it’s beautiful, like a bride! With a misty veil. I don’t ever expect to be a bride myself. I’m so homely nobody would ever want to marry me – except maybe a foreign missionary. Not only am I homely, I’m also thin. I love to imagine I’m nice and plump with dimples in my elbows. And also this, my red hair, I can never be perfectly happy because of this. I can imagine away my freckles and green eyes and skinniness – but not my red hair. I always imagine what it would be like to be divinely beautiful. I hope Mr Cuthbert and his sister like me even though I’m not. Oh I can’t wait to get home. Home! What a lovely sound-almost angelic. I don’t know that I’ll ever get used to it. Mrs Spenser told me all about green gables, and it seems like a dream. I’ve pinched myself black and blue from the elbows up hoping it isn’t. Oh no, what if the Cuthbert’s wish for me to say prayers? I don’t know how, I’ve never been taught too. And besides, God gave me my red hair so I never cared for him very much. Maybe I should practice, I need to kneel down don’t I? Why should we kneel to pray? We’d be closer to heaven standing up wouldn’t we? Anyway…

Dear Father, I thank thee for the White Way of Delight and the Lake of Shining Waters. And that’s all the blessings I can think of just now. As for the things I want, they’re so numerous, I will only mention the two most important. Please, please let me stay at Green Gables. And please let me be good looking when I grow up. I remain yours respectfully, Anne Shirley. Good night.
