Toastcaster 15 MonoDrama- Paul Meets Yoko

December 5, 2008

This monodrama is an unlikely meeting between Paul & Yoko that would have taken place in December 2006. Only an interpreted version of Paul's voice is heard. Yoko's is implied. A monodrama is where only one person speaks to another person seemingly in the room, compared to a soliloquy where the person is talking to himself.

Interpretive Reading is one of the 15 advanced Toastmasters manuals.  Not every project is a typical speech.

    Introduction was a good idea to set the scene. Very well done. Well researched. I could feel your pain. Obviously a Beatles Fan. Sound seemed just a little fast at the beginning.

    Would love to do this presentation at my club. Do you have a script and would you be willing to share it? Of course I would provide this address and your name with the credit. I would like to be Yoko. Thank you for your consideration.

    Hi Elaine,

    It was done so long ago, I’m not sure if I still have my notes. Just so you know, only Paul speaks, Yoko doesn’t. Her voice is implied.

    Let me see if I can find it. In the meantime, feel free to play it or reproduce it for your club. And please provide a credit.

    Best done in a dimly lit room. Even under candlelight would be great.

    unbeknown me to, Paul actually did meet up and sort of make good with Yoko. Give Peace a Chance

    Hi, I am a toastmaster in Aberdeen, Scotland and am working my way through the Interpretive reading manual. I have been looking unsucessfully for a suitable relevent monodrama for some time. With your permission I would like to recite your excellent speech and would credit you in the introduction. Coming from the UK I come in contact with many scousers (liverpudlians ) and liked the little bits of scouse phrasing which added authenticity. My other comment would be to slow some parts of the speech down for added emphasis. Otherwise very enjoyable

    PETER, I would be honoured for you to recite my speech. Would you be able to record it in either audio or video? I’d love to hear it or see it.

    Also, visit my Facebook page. There is a photo of me, a scouser and of course, Scouse! I’m sure you can identify the person in the photo. When you do, also identify yourself there as well!
