Synopsis

A challenging, wide-ranging collection of monologues from history’s greatest dramatic works

From the stately and poetic Greek tragedies to the lively, bawdy Restoration comedies, the classical repertoire is a treasure trove of often-overlooked materials for male and female, young and old. The solo pieces collected here vary widely in mood, style, and level of challenge; they include a generous supply of Shakespeare and his contemporaries; and they’re fleshed out with brief plot synopses and valuable historical material. Stefan Rudnicki, an accomplished actor, director, and teacher, also provides practical tips on preparing each scene for audition or performance. Among the playwrights whose works are included are:

Aeschylus
Sophocles
Euridipes
Aristophanes
Shakespeare
Tourneur
Kyd
Middleton
Jonson
Sheridan
Dryden
Congreve

…and many others.
