Soliloquy is a collection of eight monologues and a final scene where the 8 characters from the monologues meet at a funeral. They are all related and recall earlier times, when they were close to one another. The play has been performed in a perambulatory style with the audience moving to various locations appropriate to the monologues. Several monologues have been used as solo pieces by young performers in NSW as VCE pieces and others have been used for study at various performing arts training institutions.

Soliloquy is a companion piece to Swansong
