Millennium Monologs: 95 Contemporary Characterizations for Young Actors (Paperback)
This collection of contemporary monologues features familiar, well-established authors who voice traditional views on current issues and a host of new, contemporary authors who offer fresh, original insights on similar topics. The book is divided into "voices" rather than standard categories that identify characters simply by age, gender or point of view. The individual voices express themes like hope and longing, spirit and soul, fantasy and fun, or despair and doubt. Each section also concludes with a multiple voice performance script appropriate for group work or small ensemble role-playing. With many monologues for women and minority actors, well-known writers include Arthur Miller, Christopher Durang, Wendy Wasserstein and Steve Martin.
