A collection of fifty audition speeches for women selected from the finest plays of the last twenty years. There are pieces from mainstream contemporary classics such as Willy Russell's Educating Rita, Stephen Poliakoff's City Sugar, Jim Cartwright's Road, and Caryl Churchill's Serious Money, as well as keynote plays like Mark Ravenhill's Shopping and F***ing, Timberlake Wertenbaker's Our Country's Good, Lee Hall's Spoonface Steinberg, David Mamet's Oleanna, and many more. They cover a wide range of mood and character, from comedy to tragedy, from youth to old age. Each piece is accompanied by a synopsis setting the extract firmly in its context.

The volume is introduced by the editor with a note of advice drawn from interviews with experienced directors.
