This is a selection of speeches drawn from the great landmark plays of the twentieth century. The most famous playwrights of the British, American and European theatre - and the plays most constantly performed on stages around the world - are represented in this unique collection. Monologues of all types - both serious and comic, realist and absurdist - provide a dynamic challenge for all the actors: the student, the amateur and professional. Here is an invaluable resource for acting classes, competitions, auditions and rehearsals. A fuller appreciation of each speech is enhanced by the editor's introductions and commentaries, which set the plays and individual speeches in their dramatic and performance contexts.
