Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up

This volume of highly entertaining monologues is gleaned from one-act and full-length plays published by Playscripts, Inc., allowing for full characters with interesting stories. The well-organized book divides the pieces by gender and includes a section with monologues that are gender neutral. Pieces range from one to five minutes in length and cover a wide range of emotions. Characters run the gamut from historical to modern, literary to supernatural. They range in age from 5 to 18. Dialogue is realistic and occasionally gritty, giving teen actors the opportunity to use strong voices. This is an excellent volume to help students prepare for competitions as well as to use in drama, speech, or English classes. Drama instructors can also get an idea of the tone and pace of the plays from which these pieces are taken, making it easier to select a school production.-Terrilyn Fleming, Colby Public Schools, KS
