Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is wonderful, up-to-date material for scene study, selected from the best plays from recent theater seasons. More than 20 monologues for both men and women, carefully chosen to display the widest range of dramatic ability, are essential for auditioning actors. A large selection of parts for woman provide exciting opportunities to sharpen acting skills in roles that brought accolades from New York's toughest critics. More than 80 scenes in all, many previously unpublished, allow every actor, professional, amateur or student, to choose from either smart, sassy, often outrageous comedy or deeply moving drama—a unique, balanced collection of the most successful contemporary plays.

84 fully playable scenes with story notes. Monologues from the best new plays—including Agnes of God, Sly Fox, Key Exchange and Nuts. The best contemporary selection of scenes for women—more than 50 in all.

Synopsis:

Schulman and Mekler provide 78 new, fully playable scenes with story notes, including more monologues for men and women from today's best new plays. A diverse selection of scenes and characters to challenge the full range of readers' talents as actors.
