From the publishers:
New Monologues For Women features a rich selection of monologues from plays published by Bloomsbury Methuen Drama over recent years. The speeches have been selected for their suitability and relevance to actors hunting for original, fresh audition material and students auditioning for drama school.
Offering a range of high-quality material, bursting with dramatic potential and suitable for a wide range of ages and characters, this volume offers fresh alternatives to the standard audition fare.
Each monologue is preceded by a short introduction by the editor, outlining the setting, character type and context. Suggestions are offered for staging, performance decisions and points of significance in the text.
This collection is the go-to resource for auditioning actors with an insatiable appetite for new, original and excellent material by a wide range of playwrights.
