It really depends on several factors including whether you want a comedy or a serious piece, how much cutting you are willing to do, if you are doing a duo or a solo, and what kind of message you want to send with your performance.
My most favorite duo piece I have seen is "Fight Club". I use this one as an example for my Oral Interpretation class at school. I have also seen cuttings from "The Chalk Garden", and "The Odd Couple" that have worked well.
Click on the link below to see the "Fight Club" video. Good Luck!

Lucille Fletcher's "The Hitchhiker". It wowed 'em when I dramatically declaimed it in 1966, and I won a first place award in the State.
