Geoffrey Colman - Editor

Published by Methuen

New Monologues for Women features forty monologues from recent plays published by Bloomsbury Methuen Drama

The monologues have been selected by editor Geoffrey Colman because of their suitability and relevance to drama school students and recent graduates entering the profession

The Collection captures the best contemporary monologues for women

As well as celebrating the monologue as a piece for performance, it offers accompanying commentary to engage with the dramatic challenges and issues that the performer will face

To this end, each monologue is preceded by an introductory paragraph outlining the setting, character type, and point in the plot

Drawing on decisions made in professional productions, suggestions are offered for staging, performance decisions, and points of significance in the text

This collection is the go-to resource for auditioning actors with an insatiable appetite for new, original and excellent material


"It is important that young actors are aware of new writing and that they use new monologue material for their audition pieces. This [Collection] will prove that they are up-to-date with new plays, emerging writers and trends. The readership will be young actors auditioning for drama schools, professional work and even television or film work. It will be also of interest to playwrights, directors and producers looking for new plays" ~ Dr George Rodosthenous, University of Leeds
