Editorial Reviews

Clair Sinnett
This book serves a need in our industry for the one-minute monologue. Agents, Managers and Casting Directors, such as myself, enjoy a brief prepared monologue. Usually, we are put in the uncomfortable position of interrupting the actors before their monologues are complete, as it is really unnecessary for us to see more than a minute. Deborah's monologues are written in natural dialogue and are age appropriate. I have already recommended this book to numerous actors and parents.

What People are saying about this

Kerry M. Keepers
Ms. Maddox has put together a virtual roller-coaster ride over, under and through dramatic and comedic presentation. As a reader, I was put in touch with a kaleidoscope of emotions as well as the ability to relate personally with each vignette. From delight to despair, nothing is held back. As an acting coach, I saw a masterful approach to generating the right tools for young actors to get in touch with their feelings. Ms. Maddox has a rare knack for using the right words, what a young person, in a given circumstance, would say. She is fearless in content and context. This collection will enable students (or anyone else) to get in touch with and convey a wide spectrum of emotions. I applaud her work and look forward to the use of her material as a 'how to' of monologues.
