An essential resource for actors participating in acting classes, contests, auditions and rehearsals culled from a list that has been the home of cutting edge drama for over twenty years. The Oberon Book of Modern Monologues for Men collects over fifty speeches from some of the finest plays of the last twenty years, and from the unique roster of the UK s leading independent drama publisher. Bringing together specially selected speeches by essential modern dramatists such as Howard Barker, Chris O Connell, Richard Bean, Tanika Gupta, Will Eno, Meredith Oakes, Abi Morgan, Tom Morris & Emma Rice, Kneehigh, Rod Beacham, Toby Whithouse, and Dennis Kelly, The Oberon Book of Modern Monologues for Men is a unique and useful resource for amateur, student, and professional actors alike, participating in acting classes, contests, auditions and rehearsals. Edited by Catherine Weate, the book is helpfully arranged according to age suitability - Teens, Twenties, Thirties, Forty plus - and sets the plays and individual speeches in their dramatic and performance context.
