Monologues for 'Others'
Published by Samuel French
'This book is for the ‘others’ . For anyone who’s ever felt othered. For us lot. Who deserve celebration and opportunity. Each one is written with love, with the actor in mind. I hope they make your body feel fizzy. I hope they get you all the jobs. I hope your flowers bloom'.
A collection of monologues written for actors who struggle to find speeches and characters they can truly identify with and they feel comfortable performing in auditions
The main focus are working class women and trans people, since, in Charlie Josephine’s words, “class and queerness will forever be an intersecting dance”
Some of the monologues are from plays that have already been produced
Others are brand new and written specifically for this collection
Included is a glossary of themes and tones to help the reader find immediately the specific feeling and context they are looking for
