A plea

After turning my house upside-down twice, I've come to the conclusion that the pixies have made off with my copy of Tony Kushner's A Bright Room Called Day.

Does anyone have one I can borrow, and/or could you scan and email me Paulinka's monologue about the black poodle? I want to use it for an audition this weekend, and need to refresh my memory as I haven't done it it over a year. And you just know as soon as I break down and buy a new copy, it'll turn up!

ETA: Success! Behold the power of Google. There's stuff I like in the snipped part, but this will do in a pinch. (Still wanna know where my darn book has gotten to, though...)

Pixies have stolen my copy as well. I know and love that monologue.

All hail Google! Found it quoted on someone's blog.

What is missing
I've seen Him. Well, not Him, exactly, or...
When I started acting I did two seasons at the Municipal Theatre of Karlsruhe. Ever been to Karlsruhe? (She smiles; it is a telling smile) We were giving Faust, Part One, a play I've always detested, and I was playing Gretchen, a part I've always detested, and I was not happy, not happy at all. There were nights that I thought I'd be stuck in the provinces forever, never see Berlin, never see the inside of a film studio, die, go to hell, and it'd be exactly like Karlsruhe. Black nights, you could imagine your whole life gone.

What has been snipped:

(So inbetween 'Do business with the devil' and 'Probably just somebody's nasty black poodle.')

But the poodle had other things in mind. I guess it must have startled when I asked it if it wanted to make me an offer. It leapt up at me, barking and snarling, and obviously out for blood. Chased me for blocks. I escaped by ducking into a bar, where I drank and drank and drank...

Re: What is missing
The first comment was the beginning of the piece, and the second was the replaced "snip."

I think you'd loose a lot if you don't start that monologue with "I've seen Him." But that's me. Starting with "You know that scene..." is not nearly as interesting.

But if you ever need a source for anything Kushner, I'm your girl. I'm fairly sure I have copies of everything he's written except Caroline or Change.

I agree, but unfortunately the whole bit about Karlsruhe (which I love) makes it too long for an audition piece. :-/
