Summary
The Contemporary monologue is a collection of the best stage monologues of the past decade. It brings together a selection from some of the most vital and award-winning plays by major playwrights produced by British and American theatres. This volume includes monologues of all types--from serious to comic and shades in between--to provide a varied, dramatic challenge for any actor: professional, student or amateur. Here is a resource for auditions, acting classes, competitions and rehearsals. A fuller appreciation of each speech is enhanced by the editors' introductions and commentaries which put in performance context each monologue and character plus the play from which they are drawn
