What People are Saying About This
I have sifted through hundreds of plays in search of wonderful monologues for actors to use in class or for auditions and then managed, by hook or by crook, to get the rights to print them in this book. Here you will find a wide variety of excellent monologues, for a wide range of performers-though the majority of the pieces I have chosen are for actors under forty as I believe these are the actors with the most pressing need for new monologue material...If you're an actor, or an acting student, who prefers to work on material from published, readily available plays, I venture to say that you won't find a monologue book more useful to you than this one.
