The Moors – Monologue (Agatha)

A monologue from the play by Jen Silverman


I think, Miss Vangergaard, you know very little about women and what they are capable of. That is not your fault.

You have been handed limitations, which you accepted. Perhaps accepting them was your fault. Either way, in your time here on the moors,

perhaps you will become more knowledgeable. A woman, Miss Vangergaard, desires results. A little girl desires approval, maybe,

but a woman desires efficient results. I desired a governess. I wrote to one. She quit her immediate position and came to me.

Like a bee to a flower. Is that not…efficient? Is that not what you would call: a result?
