“If there is something that you believe should be written, then write it. It is simple as that. So stop looking at internet quotes and begin.”-William Shakespeare
Shakespeare was completely right. In this case, the “something” I believe should be written: audition monologues. I can’t count how many times I’ve seen friends scramble to find audition pieces that fit them right. Mainly, the problem is identity, in all aspects. Examples include:
-Gender (Specifically Female)
-Actually funny ones.
So my idea is to put a book together called, “The Other Monologues” . The book would contain a variety of monologues for underrepresented groups, as well as monologues that would be flexible for a wide selection of actors. I would look to release it in the Spring of 2015.
The reason I write this up is twofold:
Now I have a group of people to shame me if I don’t finish it.
Your suggestions would help make the book!
That’s right! If you fill out this extremely quick six question survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TLZT97F , I’ll use the feedback to determine what kind of monologues I should write. This is not because I don’t have ideas. I want your feedback to make a quality collection of monologues that people would actually care about. If you’ve got a minute, the survey link is right above.
Thanks for reading. I know this note is only the beginning of the journey to release “The Other Monologues”. Want to come along for the ride?
