DOWNSTAIRS AT GOSFORD PARK

by Gary Abrahams

Samson is a waiter. He works at upmarket events and cocktail parties serving drinks and canapes. Being constantly surrounded by the moneyed guests at such events makes him hyper-aware of the dismal role fate has in store for him. He knows he will always just be a waiter at these events, never a guest.

The evening the monologue takes place he has been serving at an arts function involving various actors and writers performing pompous and pretentious performance pieces. He suddenly explodes forth with his own monologue which reveals his deep desire to be allowed on the other side of the tray, and how his female alter-ego allows him to fantasise about such a life.
