Finding good, interesting audition pieces is a demanding and difficult process for actors. Jean Marlow has brought together 50 selections, the majority of which have never appeared in an audition book before.
The pieces, which include modern and classical, have been selected because most of them require or can be performed in a particular accent. Examples of the range of parts included are American, Asian, Jamaican, Irish, South African, Italian, Scottish, Welsh, Newcastle and Yorkshire, covering all ages. Actors can find a speech to suit their particular voice or can show their range by selecting a speech with a contrasting accent.
There is an introductory section showing how to prepare and give your best performance at an audition. In addition there are comments from directors giving their advice on how to audition successfully.
