Summary
"In Performance is an indispensable collection of monologues for today's aspiring young actors. Featured are dynamic monologues from contemporary stage plays of the past 15 years, as selected by a professional acting teacher, director, and casting director. Along with covering the basics of how best to match the monologue to the actor and how to approach the rehearsal and performance of the piece, this handy guide provides a synopsis of each play, character descriptions, and a list of questions specific to each monologue that will help actors develop complex, honest, and thoughtful performances with a strong emotional connection, a clear arc, and playable actions"--provided by publisher
