"The Modern Monologue" in two volumes, one for men and one for women, is an exciting selection of speeches drawn from the landmark plays of the 20th century. The great playwrights of the British, American and European theatre-- and the plays most constantly performed on stage throughout the world--are represented in this unique collection.
Monologues of all types--both serious and comic, realistic and absurdist--provide a dynamic challenge for all actors: the student, the amateur and the professional.
A fuller appreciation of each speech is enhanced by the editors' introduction and commentaries that set the plays and individual speeches in their dramatic and performance contexts.
"The Modern Monologue: Women " contains 50 speeches from such plays as:
"A View from the Bridge," Arthur Miller
"Cat on a" "Hot Tin Roof," Tennessee Williams
"Cloud Nine," Caryl Churchill
"Happy Dayse," Samuel Beckett
"Lovers," Brian Friel
"The Modern Monologue" is an invaluable resource for acting classes, competitions, rehearsals and auditions.
