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 book, you’ll find forty fantastic speeches featuring female roles, all written and premiered since the year 2014, by some of the most exciting dramatic voices writing today

Playwrights include Mike Bartlett, Andrew Bovell, Chris Bush, Jez Butterworth, Vivienne Franzmann, Ella Hickson, Lucy Kirkwood, Chinonyerem Odimba, Frances Poet and Stef Smith

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 essential things you need to know about the character, and then five inspiring 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

REVIEWS

‘Easy-to-use… The guidance is perhaps the most thorough I have seen in a monologue book’ ~ Teaching Drama on Trilby James’s first volume of Contemporary Monologues

Please note that some of the speeches in this volume contain strong language and themes which some readers may find inappropriate
