The Modern Monologue takes up the story from The Classical Monologue , also by Earley and Keil. As before, with each monologue the editors have provided a useful acting note designed to help the performer understand the kind of acting style that inspired the writing. Separate volumes are compiled for men and women, each can be used by either student or professional actors. This volume offers over 50 audition speeches celebrating the outstanding English, American and Continental dramatists of this century. The work of Amouilh, Arden, Baldwin, Barnes, Beckett, Behan, De Filippo, Gorky, Lorca, Mamet, Miller, Pirandello, Sartre and Wedekind is represented in monologues for men.
