Monologues are an essential part of every actor’s toolkit. Actors need them for drama school entry, training, showcases and when auditioning for roles in the industry. Following on from the bestselling first volume (2008) and second volume (2013) this book showcases selected monologues from some of the finest modern plays by some of today’s leading contemporary playwrights. The monologues contain a diverse range of quirky and memorable characters that cross cultural and historical boundaries. The pieces are organised in age-specific groups: ‘Teens’, ‘Twenties’ and ‘Thirties’. This volume comes in a brand new format, acting as an actor’s workbook as well as monologue resource.
