7 Monologues from Cathedral Song
Rather than buy these monologues why not purchase the whole script?
Cathedral Song requires the stepping into some Australian Catholic traditions and being aware of the changing cultural movement over the last half century. It asks us to relate traditional practices with individual needs for spiritual connectedness. It asks us to see how our personal journeys and searching are aided and threatened by social and cultural agendas and competing concerns.
In posing these questions, we are challenged to view the issue of drug use not in isolation but as part of the natural desire for adventure and personal journey which has been diverted and betrayed. The girl in the Cathedral is seeking for something higher than her mundane existence. The beauty in her ordinary voice, the colours in the windows, the emptiness of the cavernous structure of the building provide her with some connection to the ghosts of her ancestry and potential of her future. She says she can’t explain it. But she is aware of something more.
Our challenge is to see how best we can accommodate and facilitate that search through the institutions we serve and through our daily interactions with each other.
