Forty fantastic male speeches for teenagers, all written since the
year 2000, by some of the most exciting and acclaimed writers
working today. Whether you're applying for drama school, taking an
exam, or auditioning for a professional role, it's likely you'll be
required to perform one or more monologues, including a piece from
a contemporary play. It's vital to come up with something fresh
that's suited both to you - in order to allow you to express who
you are as a performer - and to the specific purposes of the
audition. In this invaluable collection you'll find forty speeches
by leading contemporary playwrights including Annie Baker, Jez
Butterworth, Nadia Fall, Ella Hickson, Arinze Kene, Dawn King,
Jessica Swale, Jack Thorne, Enda Walsh and Tom Wells, from plays
that were premiered at many of the UK's most famous and respected
venues, including the National Theatre, Shakespeare's Globe,
Manchester Royal Exchange, Royal Court Theatre, Bush Theatre,
Traverse Theatre, the Young Vic, and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Drawing on her experience as an actor, director and teacher at
several leading drama schools, Trilby James introduces each speech
with a user-friendly, bullet-point list of ten things you need to
know about the character, and then five ideas to help you perform
the monologue. This book also features a step-by-step guide to the
process of selecting and preparing your speech, and approaching the
audition itself. `Sound practical advice for anyone attending an
audition... a source of inspiration for teachers and students
alike' Teaching Drama Magazine on The Good Audition Guides
