MONOLOGUES
GOMEZ ADDAMS Where are we from? Funny you should ask. July 31st, 1715. The
Spanish warship, Pico de Gallo, commanded by my great nautical ancestor, Captain General
Redondo Ventana Laguna Don Jose Cuervo, leaves Madrid, bound for the new world. Three
weeks later, he is still in Madrid, as Madrid is over four hundred miles from the nearest
ocean. A stubborn man, he sets sail anyway, only to sink, six months later, off the southern
coast of Floridaa hostile land, infested with mosquitoes, rattlesnakes, and many retired
Jewish peoples. But enough about us!
UNCLE FESTER Storms passed. Think Ill get a little moon. Yoo hoo, where are you
hiding? Are you playing with me, my only one? There you are! Look at her. Lovely, is she
not? And so far away. Yes, in matters of love, my dears, distance is our friend. Closeness? No
thank you. Quarter of a million miles away--thats a good distance for romance. We never
fight, each waning is a heartbreaking separation. Each meeting, a happy reunion.
LUCAS BEINEKE I work after school at the bookstore. And on weekends, I tutor kids at a
charter school. And summers I work at my uncles grocery. On my time off, I mostly think
about Wednesday and how much I love her and how we could have a wonderful life together.
One day, Ill be a writer. Or maybe a medical examiner. You get to look inside peoples bodies
and they dont mind, because theyre dead.
MAL BEINEKE OK, Addams, I tried. I thought OK, the kids like each other, lets give it a
shot. But you people are insane. You got a house where there shouldnt be a house, a
zombie for a butler, and a man whos dating the moon. Were simple people, Mister Addams.
Were not used to your sophisticated New York lifestyle. So with your permission, were
gonna go back to the real America. Full disclosure. Lucas, help your mother off the table.
PUGSLEY ADDAMS Grandma, what if there was this girl who met this person and hes all
like, Hey, its the Pugster. What up, little man? and shes all like golly and were going to
go now and theyre running away together. What if she doesnt get rid of him? What if all
the good times are already behind me? What if she never tortures me anymore? I could stab
my arm myself, and I could spray myself with mace, but it just wouldnt be the same without
her.
MORTICIA ADDAMS I gave up my dreams for the sake of this family. I wanted to travel. I
wanted to see Paris So thats how it ends, huh? Alone and forgotten in a tiny room, living
on cat food and broken dreamswhats what happens to mothers. Look at yours. She came
for the weekend, the weeks turned into months, its twelve years later and shes still up
there: deceived, deluded, smoking in the attic. A grandma. Well, Im not going to end up like
your mother. You lied to me, and I cant live with that.`
WEDNESDAY ADDAMS OK, family meeting. About tonight. Now. Heres the schedule.
First, we have drinks, like Hi, nice to meet you. And then theyll want to see the house, and
then at eight, well have dinner and they can be back at their hotel by nine thirty. Oh please,
Daddy! Its just a dinner, and theyre dying to meet youand I promised Lucasand you
know how I hate to break a promise. Daddy, Im your only daughter and your eldest child,
and if you cant do this one thing for me, then I just dont know what!
ALICE BEINEKE - Its a lovely dress, Wednesday! Yellow is the color of the warming sun.
Yellow is the color of yumminess and fun. Why not show the world the love in which we all
believe? Why not wear your heart for all to see, right on your sleeve? Oh, the rhyming? You
see, When
Im depressed or feeling blessed, a poem will get it off my chest. They come to me, they take
no time, they just pop out, and always rhyme!
GRANDMAMA The kid and I had a little heart-to-heart before. I told him to use his time
wisely. Look whos talkinghow much time have I got left? Im a hundred and two, I have
shingles and arthritis, and when I break wind it could start the windmills on an old Dutch

painting. But, Ive still got one more round in me. Call me Cougar, but fivell get you ten
theres a couple of 90-year-old hotties out there just waiting to chow down on a Grandma
sandwich. Full disclo full disclos I just peed.
LURCH and ADDAMS ANCESTORS These Characters may choose from any of the above
monologues.
