OddInt Media to Release PLAY. SPEAK. MODERN MONOLOGUES FOR THE MODERN YOUNG ACTOR
by BWW News Desk - Apr 29, 2014

Monologues are tricky for any actor, especially young ones, and it is often difficult to find the right monologue to fit the right actor. As more and more young people commence an early acting career - whether it is to earn money, to build a resume for college, or just to develop self-confidence and public speaking skills - they find themselves scrambling, not only to find the right monologue that can evoke an array of complex emotions and reactions, but also to find one that hasn't been overused and will still be challenging enough to take their acting skills to the next level. Therefore, young actors too often perform pieces written for adults that obviously don't fit their age, or try to work with one- dimensional monologues that do nothing for their training. Play. Speak. is a collection of 40 challenging monologues for young actors, ages 13 to 18. The collection covers a vast range of circumstances that address many different situations from a variety of factors, including social class, race and ethnicity, mental health, and simply, maturity level, wrapped in an array of circumstances and genres, i.e. family drama, personal discovery and growth, coming of age comedic drama, and more, that can be used for auditions, acting exercises, or audience entertainment in a stage review.
