MAX:

A SOUP KITCHEN COOK MONOLOGUE

The monologue focuses on America's dependency on food additives and chemicals and their harmful effects on its consumers, especially the homeless.

Max is trying to keep poison out of food specifically poison out of the mouths of babes, vets, yes - the homeless population. The monologue builds as Max explains his reasons, his methods, his knowledge and never lets up. You are so on his side. A compelling monologue about food, homelessness or just trying to care in today’s world.
