Actors need audition material, and no playwright is as frequently mined for gold as the Bard himself. But actors too frequently rely on the same great speeches from the same great plays. Following on his successful Alternative Shakespeare Auditions for Women, Simon Dunmore presents even more underappreciated speeches that will make a classical audition sound fresh. Here are fifty speeches from Shakespeare-- overlooked speeches from favorite plays like Antony and Cleopatra, as well as good speeches from plays frequently ignored, like Love's Labour's Lost. Each speech is accompanied by brief character descriptions, notes on obscure words and references, and a helpful explanation of context.

About the author (2000)

William Shakespeare is the world's greatest ever playwright. Born in 1564, he split his time between Stratford-upon-Avon and London, where he worked as a playwright, poet and actor. In 1582 he married Anne Hathaway. Shakespeare died in 1616 at the age of fifty-two, leaving three children--Susanna, Hamnet and Judith. The rest is silence.

Simon Dunmore, Consultant Editor for "Actors' Yearbook, " is a director with over forty years' experience of employing actors and teaching them. He has drawn on his own knowledge, his long experience of teaching acting students, and also the experience of numerous other professionals, to produce a book that has become - over the last twenty years - the standard work of reference for actors of all ages.
