Really good recent monologues/soliloquies in plays?

This is partly because I feel like I need a crash course in contemporary theatre, but what are some exceptionally good monologues/soliloquies? From, say, the last 50 years?
I don't really mind genre but I am very interested in the character building/revealing process that happens within a monologue so anything along those lines would be great.
One exception: there's a certain kind of one-man-show where it's more about giving a collection of stories loosely linked together like the Vagina monologues or any kind of stand-up. While this can be very smart and funny, I'm more interested in the 'theatrical' variety of monologue than the 'I'm just going to tell you a funny thing that happened to me' kind.
