What People are Saying About This
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!
Award-Winning Dramatic & Speech Coach (Retired), Victor J. Andrew High School
Every play is championship material. I am going to order the entire series, and fully expect to have a state duet acting powerhouse team.
Head of Speech and Theater, Borger High School, Borger, TX
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
These plays are funny, different, and exciting: a must-have for every theater department.

Lhota and Milstein's scenes are a forensics coach's and drama teacher's dream: intelligent, well-crafted, and most importantly, original.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is such a wonderful book. If the writer's read this I just want to say thank you so much.
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!
