Publisher Comments:

As professional directors and teachers who work with young and adult actors at the Tony Award-Winning American Conservatory Theater, Slaight and Sharrar have years of experience helping actors uncover the dynamics of the monologue, as acting exercise and as audition material. Now in their impressive third volume of age-appropriate monologues, culled from plays by substantial playwrights from an international field, the editors have assembled an impressive collection to take the actor/director/teacher to new levels of sophistication and breadth. The volume's introduction is a concise guide to today's audition obstacles and how to overcome them. As in their other award-winning collections, Slaight and Sharrar have selected character speeches from the finest dramatic literature. In addition, they have included a special section on the use of the song lyric as an exciting and useful exercise in solo work.Some of the writers included are: Edward Albee Lee Blessing Constance Congdon Kia Corthron Bob Dylan Horton Foote Timothy Mason Sharman Macdonald Lynn Nottage Adam Rapp George Bernard Shaw Shakespeare Sam Shepard John M. Synge
