Susanne is young, attractive, confident in herself. She knows the power she possess, that she is attractive to men. Picasso's appetite for consuming and devouring experience, life, her ... and transforming it into art ... sweeps her off her feet (right onto her back). She can tell he is significant, important. It is a brief encounter, a tryst, a flash in the pan, a powerful inexplicable moment of passion. And then he is gone. And she is left disappointed and yearning. She has come to the cafe Lapin Agile looking to see him again.
The monologue begins on page 18 of Picasso at the Lapin Agile and Other Plays with the line "I ... it was about two weeks ago." and ends on page 20 with "He told me about this place, that he might see me here one day, and that was two weeks ago." You'll have to cut interjections and decide on other internal cut within the piece to get it to audition time. For an example of how it can be cut see page 73 of 222 Comedy Monologues 2 Minutes and Under.
Great monologue if you are auditioning for a comedy, if the role will be one with some sex appeal and romance, if there is some erudition and sophistication to the characters in the play.
"Well at that point the word no became like a Polish village: unpronounceable."
