"Contemporary Scenes for Actors: Women" collects scenes from the most acclaimed and award-winning playwrights of the 1990s. It contains over 40 two-character scenes (for women/women and women/men), with the selection of scenes encompassing the widest range of styles from serious to comic and shades in between.
A fuller appreciation of the dramatic context of the scenes is enhanced by the editors' introductions and commentaries. Each of the scenes offers the actor the opportunity to develop and explore the vital, dynamic and unique challenge of working with a partner on stage.
"Libraries and faculty bookshelves are a good place to keep books such as the two under review (companion volume "Contemporary Scenes for Actors: Men). They both include unknown material, along with noted plays and playwrights. The cuttings are well chosen and balanced. The comments by the editors are well thought out and informative."
