Playwriting

Picture Prompts: NYC

Use these pictures to jump start your writing. For each picture write a monologue or scene inspired by what you see. Not sure now to start? Write a monologue from the perspective of the person taking the picture. Write a monologue from the perspective of the object in the picture like the battered umbrella.

Write the scene that takes place the moment before the picture is snapped, or the moment after. A couple of the pictures involve strange signs, like the kitchen and footwear store, (who decided to sell those those things together?)- write the scene that lead to the posting of the signs.

Write something completely unrealistic and fantasy inspired that explains the picture. The possibilities are endless….
