Product Description

Review

'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

I bought this as I had an audition I had to recite a monologue for.
This book was okay, very modern monologues so not great if you're looking for classics.
I didn't feel a connection with many of them and ended up using my own from a famous play.
I think this book will work for some people, but unfortunately, it was only average in my eyes,

Being a drama professional I buy avidly any books offering a new selection of monologues suitable for auditions and drama exams. This collection seems excellent, but extremely difficult to read because of the pale grey print against the white page. Such seems to be the trend at the moment - unfortunately - but I have given up trying to read this book because the strain of narrowing my eyes, turning the book towards a maximum light source and still having to concentrate on deciphering the print rather than absorbing the words is just too taxing. Yes, I wear spectacles - but my vision is generally good. Please produce this book in darker print so that money is not wasted and frustration avoided.
