Overview
Edited by Gerald Lee Ratliff. Professional auditions for aspiring actresses. The gender-specific monologs in this new text are highly original works not found in other published versions. All are from very recently produced plays from both well-known and emerging new writers. The selections are for women actors fifteen to thirty years of age, suitable for competitive auditions, acting exercises, forensics, class or studio work. Beginning with an introduction to performance and audition etiquette, the text's characterizations are divided into ages: The Age of Innocence, Coming of Age, The Age of Rebellion, The Gilded Age and New Age Voices. These monolog characterizations address the major trends and conflicts of today through revealing glimpses of society. A valuable resource for any auditioning female actor or theatre student. Features monologs from: "The General of Hot Desire" by John Guare, "Junk" by Melvin Burgess, "An American Daughter" by Wendy Wasserstein, "Summer" by Edwin Bond, "For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls" and "Betty's Summer Vacation" by Christoper Durang, "Picasso's Women" by Brian McAvera, "Relationships" by Ken Friedman, "Stepping Out" by Richard Harris and many more.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great monologs for women of all ages  Apr 7, 2008
Great selection of monologues, and a strong suit is that some of the material is new to the readers. Another reviewer said some of the monologues "weren't from plays." That's a huge misunderstanding. They are ALL from plays, just some of the scripts haven't been picked up for major production yet. But that means these monologues are fresh, intriguing, and were selected based upon the quality of the writing and characterization instead of "name brand recognition" -- meaning plays everyone can access, meaning directors and producers just might be sick of hearing them. (NOTE: Don't EVER audition for a musical singing "Tomorrow" or "Corner of the Sky.") Always go for the fresh and new in theatre; the element of surprise in the material always works in your favor in auditions. You won't be compared to anyone else's delivery. Good book to have for any serious-minded female performer, and even the "Young" in the title is a misnomer; actresses of all ages deserve to scour this one for great audition and acting class pieces.
 
Great selection of monologues from recent plays  Feb 23, 2007
They loved the monologue that my daughter used at her NYU college audition---there were many good ones to choose from. The best selection I have seen in one book!
 
Monologues from Contemporary Plays  Jan 22, 2006
I needed a monologue book with monologues from plays, so I thought this would be perfect. It is pretty good, but a good portion of the monologues are not from plays - they are original. The ones from plays are good though. This book has something for every age and every emotion.
