Because a scene comes from a great play doesn't necessarily follow that it's a great scene for you. The writing may be fine and literary but, from an actor's standpoint, there are other considerations. A great scene for you is one that showcases you, lends itself best to your interpretation, makes auditors, instructors, and casting directors sit up and say, "Wow!" Often, scenes lifted from plays are-because they're lifted from plays- totally out of context. They don't make a lot of sense unless delivered in relation to the total piece. Or unless you devote a great portion of your valuable, allotted time to exposition. A scene pulled randomly from a play is an abstract thing and is usually, therefore, of an unspecified duration with no point of reference, no point of view, and no beginning, middle and end. Dramaline's original scenes are of ideal duration, embrace contemporary subjects, have definite points of view, are written in today's speech, and have beginnings, middles and ends. And they're not overworked war horses. They are fresh slices of modern life that will focus maximum attention on you. And they are presented in readable spacing and printed non-glare, eye-easy paper. Every consideration has been taken to make Dramaline books easy on the actor, to make them readily usable, effective tools. The accent is on you!
