Mary Warren's monologue in the Crucible is really dramatic. When you perform this keep in mind that this is set in the time of the Salem Witch Trials, and to not be a "Christian" was considered the utmost evil, and it meant you were associated with the devil. It's very hysterical and dramatic.
Here it is:
I never knew it before. I never knew anything before. When she come into the court I say to myself, I must not accuse this woman, for she sleeps in ditches, and so very old and poor. But then- then she sit there, denying and denying, and I feel a misty coldness climbin' up my back, and the skin on my skull begin to creep, and I feel a clamp around my neck and I cannot breathe air; and then (entranced) I hear a voice, a screamin' voice, and it were my voice- and all at once I remembered everything she done to me! (Like one awakened to a marvelous secret insight) So many times, Mr. Proctor, she come to this very door, beggin' bread and a cup of cider-and mark this: whenever I turned her away empty, she mumbled. But what does she mumble? You must remember, Goody Proctor. Last month-a Monday, I think--she walked away, and I thought my guts would burst for two days after. Do you remember it? And so I told that to Judge Hathorne, and he asks her so. "Sarah Good," says he, "what curse do you mumble that this girl must fall sick after turning you away?" And then she replies (mimicking an old crone) "Why, your excellence, no curse at all. I only say my commandments; I hope I may say my commandments," says she! Then Judge Hathorne say, "Recite for us your commandments!" (Leaning avidly toward them) And of all the ten she could not say a single one. She never knew no commandments, and they had her in a flat lie!
Lady Macbeth's soliloquy when she asks evil spirits to take away any semblance of humanity in her is pretty crazy as well. She's preparing herself for murder.
The raven himself is hoarse
That croaks the fatal entrance of Duncan
Under my battlements. Come, you spirits
That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,
And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full
Of direst cruelty! make thick my blood;
Stop up the access and passage to remorse,
That no compunctious visitings of nature
Shake my fell purpose, nor keep peace between
The effect and it! Come to my woman's breasts,
And take my milk for gall, you murdering ministers,
Wherever in your sightless substances
You wait on nature's mischief! Come, thick night,
And pall thee in the dunnest smoke of hell,
That my keen knife see not the wound it makes,
Nor heaven peep through the blanket of the dark,
To cry 'Hold, hold!'
Hope this helps!Source(s): http://www.stageagent.com/Shows/MonologuesView/987 http://www.shakespeare-online.com/plays/macbeth_1_...

Harper has some fun stuff in Angels in America. Remember, though, never to PLAY crazy - the character doesn't think she's crazy or psychopathic or whatever, she thinks everything she's saying and doing is perfectly justified.

"She is so pathetic, drenched in this dark color
drinking down her pores from the inside
but yet this feels so,so amazing
with this pain
I will step down these tiered steps till i reach hell
and I will make it my home"
