As an actor at any level - from school exam to professional casting - you are likely to be called upon to perform one or more audition pieces - often a 'classical' piece is specified. A great deal will depend on your coming up with something fresh that is suited both to your particular performing skills and to the period of the play you are auditioning for. Which is where this volume of The Good Audition Guides comes in. Drawing on her enormous experience as a theatre director and in drama training - she has sat on the selection board of several leading drama schools - Marina Caldarone has chosen for this volume fifty monologues for female actors selected from classical plays throughout the ages and ranging across all of Western theatre. Each monologue is prefaced with a neat summary of the vital information you need to place the piece in context and to perform it to maximum effect and in your own unique way. The volume also carries a user-friendly introduction on the whole process of auditioning.

From the editor of the bestselling volumes: "Modern and Contemporary Monologues for Men and for Women" This is a selection of forty great speeches drawn from landmark plays stretching from Greek and Roman theatre right through to those of the nineteenth century. In this wide-ranging collection Chrys Salt has brought together a truly international compendium with generous selections from French, Spanish, Italian, German, Russian and Scandinavian theatre. Classic speeches sit alongside lesser-known gems to guarantee a rich and rewarding collection for the actor. Unique in providing insightful commentary and guidance on every speech, this is an invaluable resource for acting classes, competitions, auditions and rehearsals. Monologues of all types - both serious and comic, and suitable for actors of all ages - provide a dynamic challenge for all practitioners: the student, the amateur and professional. A fuller appreciation of each speech is enhanced by the editor's introduction and commentaries, which set the plays and individual speeches in their dramatic and performance contexts. Praise for Chrys Salt's MAKE ACTING WORK: "A really useful book for every actor to own" --Prunella Scales "This book should be part of every resourceful actor's armoury"--Annette Badland
