In this book, the editor, Ms. Milstein, says in the Introduction & Choosing Monologues section that some of the plays are not published yet or harder to find but she chose them to make sure actors would find brand new hidden gems to audition with. She also had all of the playwrights agree to email out the scripts if you couldn't find them at your favorite bookstore because she stresses the importance of reading the entire play. There is a list of contact info (most have email addresses listed so it's quick and easy) for each playwright. I have written to a few and got the plays for free and quickly!! How wonderful not to worry that the piece has been overdone!
The monologues in the book are divided into Type by the emotion/quality they will show off to the directors. Which is a unique and brilliant way to build a repertoire so you are ready for any audition that comes up. I give this book 5 stars!
P.S. I teach acting and have several of Ms. Milstein's books and her material is consistently good.
