Reviews for Award Monologues for Men

'Patrick and Christine have researched, in depth, the latest modern plays of high calibre writing, many of which are extraordinary and, indeed, unfamiliar ... I highly recommend this book to anyone studying or auditioning, as the individual information and notes given for each speech are immensely helpful.' -- David Suchet
