Outstanding Stage Monologs and Scenes from the 90s
Professional auditions for student actors

Edited by Steven H. Gale


Cover of
Here is an exciting new collection of 40 monologs and scenes from some of the most important contemporary plays and playwrights of the 1990s.  These selections reflect actors’ and student actors’ desires for new and fresh work-pieces that are up-to-date and exciting to perform.  Chosen from only professionally produced plays, the book reflects current trends where small theatre groups proliferate, women and minorities have a growing influence and drama has become a truly international art form.  The text includes monologs for both male and female actors, duet scenes for two male or two female actors and scenes for combinations of male and female actors.  It also includes four complete ten-minute plays.  Because actors need to be able to use proven examples of good dramatic material to practice their craft, the 35 playwrights represented here include Edward Albee, Harold Pinter, Thornton Wilder, Tom Stoppard, Mario Fratti, A.J.  Gurney, Brian Friel, Marsha Norman and Israel Horovitz.  (Please note that several selections contain mature language and situations.)
