As an actor at any level - whether it be school exam, drama-school entrance or professional casting - you are likely to be called upon to perform one or more monologues - and often a speech from a contemporary play is specified. A great deal will depend on your coming up with something fresh that is suited both to your particular performing skills and to the purposes of the audition. Which is where this volume of The Good Audition Guides comes in. In this book, you'll find forty fantastic speeches featuring male roles, all written and premiered since the year 2014, by some of the most exciting dramatic voices from both sides of the Atlantic. Playwrights include Annie Baker, Andrew Bovell, Jez Butterworth, Caryl Churchill, Mark Gatiss, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, Anna Jordan, Arinze Kene, Rona Munro and Evan Placey. The plays featured were premiered at leading London theatres including the National, the Royal Court, the Bush and Hampstead, from stages in Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Manchester, and by companies including Frantic Assembly and Paines Plough.

Drawing on her experience as an actor, director and teacher at several leading drama schools, Trilby James introduces each speech with a user-friendly, bullet-point list of ten essential things you need to know about the character, and then five inspiring ideas to help you perform the monologue. This book also features a step-by-step guide to the process of selecting and preparing your speech, and approaching the audition itself. The result is the most contemporary, comprehensive monologue book now available. 'Easy-to-use... The guidance is perhaps the most thorough I have seen in a monologue book' Teaching Drama on Trilby James's first volume of Contemporary Monologues
