Every play is championship material. I am going to order the entire series, and fully expect to have a state duet acting powerhouse team.

Lhota and Milstein's scenes are a forensics coach's and drama teacher's dream: intelligent, well-crafted, and most importantly, original.
Forensics Judge and Former Assistant, Sandwich High School
James M. Brandon
The duos in this book are applicable to forensics students at various stages of development, and should be an excellent starting point for the novice speaker, in particular. A MUST-READ for forensics coaches and students at all levels of competition.
Dr., Assistant Professor of Theatre and Speech, Director of Forensics, Hillsdale College
Merel K. Marine
Just when a high school forensics coach begins to despair of finding appropriate new quality scenes for young performers, Lhota and Milstein present us with this treasure trove of quality scenes for performance and rehearsal. Thank you Barbara and Janet; we needed you thirty years ago!

    Absolutely the Funniest 10-Minute Play Collection I've Read!

    This book has so many hysterical plays in it that it was hard to choose which to work on! We finally settled on a play called 'To Be In Your Shoes' and wound up making it to regionals! I can't wait to do another one this year! Also I saw that the writers put out books for 2 females and I hope they will write some for 2 men too!! These are all for one male and one female. They are great and my coach just ordered the female books so we will hope to have winning duets all around for this coming year! These plays are also great if you do state acting competitions in Duet Acting or for scene study class. I worked on one play in acting class called The Pinnacle and it was a blast! Good luck to you and I'd buy this book if you want some great new material!
