My name is Ashley Sheehan and this is my partner Maria Lopez and we were nominated for the Kennedy Center
American College theater festival for my portrayal of Olive Ostrovsky in the Smith
Center for the Arts’ production of the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.
And we had the opportunity to go to kids CAC TM and presents to seems and a
monologue and we were lucky enough to move on to the semi finals at KCC TM and
our lovely advising professor Patricia Hockridge nominated us to be here today
and we’re very thankful so I hope you enjoy our scenes and some thank you touched my vessel afterwards he was
performing the Children’s Hour by Lillian Hellman and lastly I will be
singing somewhere that screamed from the Little Shop of doors
Thanks around here you know we misunderstood you so completely you part of the problem nobody that’s my point I only saw the
problem I see don’t wear it out go make up with Billy
you’ll feel so much better about it I promise
no my team why not I said some horrible horrible tremendous fear if you want me
to die not know I’ve done enough for me take now get out of my face we don’t love each other we don’t love
each other we’ve been close to each other of course I’ve loved you like a
friend that way thousands of women feel about other women I’m cool you weren’t a
dear friend who’s loved that’s all certainly there’s nothing wrong with
that it’s perfectly natural that I should be fond of you like we’ve known
each other since we were 17 and I always are you saying all this because I love
you yes course I love you too but maybe I love you that way
the way they said I love you I don’t know listen to me what I have loved you
the way that they said Martha warbles tired please there’s
always been something wrong always as long as I can remember but I never knew
it until all this happened stop that crazy talk you’re afraid of hearing it
I’m heart rate than you you’ve cut to know it I can’t keep it to myself any
longer I’ve got to tell you that I am guilty you are guilty of nothing I’ve
been trying to tell myself that since the night we’ve heard the child say I
lie in bed night after night praying that it isn’t true but I know about it
now it’s there I don’t know how I don’t know why but I did love you I do love
you I resented your marriage maybe because I wanted you maybe it’s been
there it’s not the truth not a word of it we’ve never thought of each other
that way I’ve never felt that way about anybody
I haven’t left a man I never knew why before maybe it’s that
you are tired and it’s funny it’s all mixed up there’s something in you and
you don’t do anything about it because you don’t know that it’s there suddenly
a little girl gets bored and there that night you see it for the first time and
to see it yourself did she see it did she send every of the same you know it
could have been any life she was looking for anything yes but why this one
she found the live with one ounce of truth in it I guess they always do I’m our kids watch me too
