From the editor of the bestselling volumes: "Modern and Contemporary Monologues for Men and for Women" This is a selection of forty great speeches drawn from landmark plays stretching from Greek and Roman theatre right through to those of the nineteenth century. In this wide-ranging collection Chrys Salt has brought together a truly international compendium with generous selections from French, Spanish, Italian, German, Russian and Scandinavian theatre. Classic speeches sit alongside lesser-known gems to guarantee a rich and rewarding collection for the actor. Unique in providing insightful commentary and guidance on every speech, this is an invaluable resource for acting classes, competitions, auditions and rehearsals. Monologues of all types - both serious and comic, and suitable for actors of all ages - provide a dynamic challenge for all practitioners: the student, the amateur and professional. A fuller appreciation of each speech is enhanced by the editor's introduction and commentaries, which set the plays and individual speeches in their dramatic and performance contexts. Praise for Chrys Salt's MAKE ACTING WORK: "A really useful book for every actor to own" --Prunella Scales "This book should be part of every resourceful actor's armoury"--Annette Badland

This unique collection of classical monologues for men and women celebrates the literary strength of the Elizabethan and Jacobean state, including writers who seldom escape the shadow of Shakespeare's glory, yet who have provided some of the finest dramatic writing in the English language, "From Court to Dungeons" is unique in other ways too. Unlike many monologue books, it unifies the speeches in a body of work that is linked by setting. As the title suggests, the drama in this book comes from the distinct perspective of the characters caught in the most desperate of circumstances: victims or victors, they are in the grip of the justice system, be it on trial or languishing in prison, facing execution or standing guard.
