'Sound practical advice for anyone attending an audition… a source of inspiration for teachers and students alike'
Teaching Drama Magazine on The Good Audition Guides

The newest additions to our hugely popular Good Audition Guides series, Contemporary Monologues for Teenagers: Female and Contemporary Monologues for Teenagers: Male, each feature forty audition speeches, all written since the year 2000, by some of the most exciting and acclaimed writers working today – including Annie Baker, Jez Butterworth, Ella Hickson, Arinzé Kene, Lynn Nottage, Jack Thorne, Enda Walsh and Tom Wells.

Each speech is introduced with a user-friendly, bullet-point list of ten things you need to know about the character, and then five ideas to help you perform the monologue. The books also feature a step-by-step guide to the process of selecting and preparing your speech, and approaching the audition itself.

Other collections in the series include Shakespeare Monologues, Classical Monologues, Contemporary Monologues for all ages and Contemporary Duologues – so whatever your requirements, the Good Audition Guides will help you find the piece that's right for you.
