This series of six volumes has been conceived to complement The Classical Monologue, The Modern Monologue and The Contemporary Monologue (by the same editors)

Contemporary Scenes for Actors (Women) contains challenging scenes for actresses for two to four performers drawn from the best contemporary stage plays of the last decade. In actor training, auditions and competitions, scene work between two or more actors is as crucial as the single actor working on solo monologues. The selections in this book celebrate the great plays, acting styles and roles of world theatre; with introductions pinpointing the action for the actor, commentaries examining the texts for acting clues and original textual/background footnotes to provide an essential resource for performers of all ages.

An essential resource for acting students and performers of all ages, for use in schools, colleges, universities and professional training programmes world-wide.
