One of THE GOOD AUDITION GUIDES: Helping you select and perform the audition piece that is best suited to your performing skills

As an actor at any level whether you are doing theatre studies at school, taking part in youth theatre, preparing for drama-school showcases, or attending professional acting workshops you will often be required to prepare a duologue with a fellow performer

Your success is often based on locating and selecting a fresh, dynamic scene suited to your specific performing skills, as well as your interplay as a duo

Which is where this book comes in

This Collection features twenty-five contemporary duologues for one man and one woman by some of our most exciting dramatic voices, offering a wide variety of character types and styles of writing

Playwrights include Howard Brenton, Jez Butterworth, Caryl Churchill, Sam Holcroft, Anna Jordan, Lucy Kirkwood, Rona Munro, Evan Placey, Jessica Swale and Jack Thorne

Drawing on her experience as an actor, director and teacher at several leading drama schools, editor Trilby James equips each duologue with a thorough introduction

Each duologue includes all the vital information you need to place the piece in context (the who, what, when, where and why)

And each includes suggestions about how to perform the scene to its maximum effect (including the characters' objectives)

The collection also features an introduction on the whole process of selecting and preparing a duologue

And how to present it to the greatest effect

The result is the most comprehensive and useful contemporary duologue book of its kind now available
