Seria Audition Speeches

Locul publicării: London, United Kingdom


There is an unprecedented demand from actors for new, original audition material. Actors and drama schools alike are weary of the standard speeches that are brought out at every audition, and wary of new speeches written explicitly for the purposes of an audition. This volume serves up a selection of new, original and high-quality monologues from the plays that Methuen Drama publish to the auditioning actor.

Geoffrey Colman is Head of Acting at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.


This is a strong proposal and I feel that there is a solid market for this collection. It is important that young actors are aware of new writing and that they use new monologue material for their audition pieces. This will prove that they are up-to-date with new plays, emerging writers and trends. The readership will be young actors auditioning for drama schools, professional work and even television or film work. It will be also of interest to playwrights, directors and producers looking for new plays. This collection might also increase the sales of the plays themselves. It has been known that a director may choose a play, simply because the trigger was the main monologue of that work. So, the readership is not limited or focused on the acting profession.
