Contemporary Irish Monologues: 60 Audition Speeches for Men and Women

A collection fo sixty diverse audition speeches for men and women selected from the finest Irish plays of the last thirty years. Contemporary classics such as Brian Friel's Faith Healer, Tom Murphy's Bailegangaire, Sebastian Barry's The Steward of Christendom, John B. Keane's Big Maggie, Frank McGuinness' Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme, and Jenniver Johnston's Desert Lullaby are complemented by more recent, ground-breaking plays such as Conor McPherson's The Weir, Marina Carr's Portia Coughlan, Martin McDonagh's The Beaty Queen of Leenane, and Marie Jones' A Night in November.

These sixty speeches explore a broad diversity of themes, moods and characters--from the serious to the comical, the real to the surreal. A short introductory note also firmly sets into place contexts and backgrounds to each piece.

Introduced by Joe Dowling, Contemporary Irish Monologues is an indispensible resource for actors, students, directors and teachers.
