The Methuen Book of Contemporary Monologues for Women by Chrys Salt

This book of contemporary monologues for women includes pieces from the best of the last three decades of contemporary playwriting, from Caryl Churchill and Michael Frayn to Martin McDonagh and Sarah Kane. Including pieces by award-winning British playwrights, here are pieces both serious and comic providing the actor with all the challenges of performing contemporary plays. The book is an invaluable resource for auditions, acting class, competitions and rehearsals. A fuller appreciation of each monologue is provided by Chrys Salt's invaluable commentaries, giving clues as to possible direction and setting each piece in the context of the play as a whole.
Praise for Chrys Salt's Make Acting Work: "A really useful book for every actor to own" Prunella Scales; "This book should be part of every resourceful actor's armoury" Annette Badland
