A monologue from the play by Colman Domingo
AUNT GLO (fifties – sixties, African American)
Note: For class or auditions, actress could be any age.
Aunt Glo’s sister Adelaide has died. Gil, her nephew, has cremated Adelaide and has taken her urn to Disney World to scatter the ashes.
YOU HAVE LOST YOUR MIND! You can’t have no funeral services in DISNEY WORLD! I don’t know what has been filling your head, excuse my French, LIVING LA VIDA LOCA,
but when a person dies, Praise Jesus, there are supposed to be funeral services. A church, a choir, a program, flowers, a casket, help me father, A CASKET! NOT AN URN! What kind of word is that anyway?
URNNNNN!!! A wreathe of flowers on the door! You need a wreathe of flowers on the door!!! And a HURST! A HURST!!! Limos for the family with big orange stickers that said funeral on ‘em!
So other cars know that they shouldn’t break the line of cars during the processional. THE PROCESSIONAL!!! What is wrong with you boy? People need a processional! People need to wear black and veils! And WEEP!!!
You gotta let people come and weep! FALL OUT and LAY over the casket weep! If they don’t weep there, then they could do it at the CEMETERY, where they toss FLOWERS on the CASKET.
THE CASKET, not the URN! You don’t toss flowers on an URN!
Toss flowers on the CASKET AND REACH THEIR GRIEF STRICKEN ARTHRITIC FINGERS TO THE BOWELS OF THE EARTH AS THEIR LOVED ONE IS TAKEN ON AN ELEVATOR TO THEIR FINAL RESTING PLACE SIX FEET UNDER.
YOU CAN’T HAVE A FUNERAL SERVICE IN ORLANDO, FLORIDA!!!! YOU CAN’T WEAR BLACK IN FLORIDA!!!
