This excellent book contains 64 monologues designed specifically for auditions where the actor desires exciting monologues that are fresh and unfamiliar. The monologues are catalogued by gender and age.
These monologues were selected from the Last Frontier Theatre Conference monologue workshop. The Last Frontier Conference is one of the longest running theater conferences of its kind. It has been held every year in Valdez, Alaska for the last 20 years.
"The Last Frontier Theater Conference is one of the most dynamic opportunities for theater artists in the United States . . . established with the guidance of playwrights like Edward Albee, August Wilson, Terrence McNally, and a host of other prominent writers"
"The core of Laura (Gardner) and Frank (Collison)'s influence at the conference is contained in their Monologues Workshop, wherein they expand the skills that sharpen and deepen an actor´s process. The performance of the monologues on stage at the end of the conference is one of the highlights of each summer."
—Marshall W. Mason, Founding Artistic Director of Circle Repertory Company and author of Creating Life on Stage
