Monologues are an essential part of every actor’s toolkit. Actors are required to perform monologues regularly throughout their career: preparing for drama school entry, showcasing skills for agents or auditioning for a role. Following on from the bestselling first volume (2008), this book showcases selected monologues from some of the finest modern plays by some of today’s leading contemporary playwrights. These monologues contain a diverse range of quirky and memorable characters that cross cultural and historical boundaries. The pieces are helpfully organised into age-specific groups: ‘Teens’, ‘Twenties’, ‘Thirties’ and ‘Forties plus’.

Teaching Drama, Summer Term issue 2010 on Modern Monologues for Women and Modern Monologues for Men Volume 1 'The whole of Life's experiences are crafted into these scenes. They give actors an incredible choice of texts... a unique and useful resource.' Word Matters: The Journal of the Society of Teachers of Speech and Drama
