As an actor at any level - from school exam to professional casting - you are likely to be called upon to perform one or more audition pieces - often a 'classical' piece is specified. A great deal will depend on your coming up with something fresh that is suited both to your particular performing skills and to the period of the play you are auditioning for. Which is where this volume of The Good Audition Guides comes in. Drawing on her enormous experience as a theatre director and in drama training - she has sat on the selection board of several leading drama schools - Marina Caldarone has chosen for this volume fifty monologues for female actors selected from classical plays throughout the ages and ranging across all of Western theatre. Each monologue is prefaced with a neat summary of the vital information you need to place the piece in context and to perform it to maximum effect and in your own unique way. The volume also carries a user-friendly introduction on the whole process of auditioning.

'So Katy Wix has written this book of comic monologues and I may have to steal some of them. Although written for the female voice, I dare say they would stand up very well if you were a gentleman and changed the odd word or two. Here you have a book filled with brilliant characters and much funny. Each piece is bubbling with the quirky genius that makes Miss Wix one of the funniest performers / writers around. If I was ever called to audition, which I am not often despite being largely available and willing to try my hand at most things, I would be most grateful to Miss Wix for this fantastic collection. However most likely I shall keep it by my bed to dip into for laughs. It is a very good read. Well done Miss Wix.' Jennifer Saunders There are many monologues books on the market but very few provide rich material for comedy. This collection from up and coming comedian & actress Katy Wix plugs that gap and provides female performers with the kind of wonderfully warm and interesting characters that they need – and deserve. A comedian and writer, Wix has for the past few years been writing audition speeches for students at drama schools including RADA, LAMDA, Drama Centre and The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. A book of contemporary comedy monologues does not exist for today's actor or indeed a book comprising solely of showcase speeches. This is a collection of very funny and original audition speeches filling a significant gap in the market: made up of monologues for various age ranges, each with a running time of two to three minutes. The brevity in length makes these ideal for auditions or showcases and the variety in age and style encompasses different comedic approaches; from the very quirky to the more traditional – perfect for every type of performer.
