Alternative Shakespeare Auditions for Men

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 1997 - Performing Arts - 120 pages
Auditioners often complain of seeing the same speeches over and over again. Director, Simon Dunmore, has seen well over ten thousand audition speeches performed, and has drawn on his experience to select and edit a new collection of unusual audition speeches from Shakespeare's plays.
This book brings together fifty speeches for men from plays frequently ignored such as Titus Andronicus, Pericles and Love's Labours Lost. It also includes good, but over-looked speeches from the more popular plays such as Octavius Caesar from Antony and Cleopatra, Leontes from The Winter's Tale and Buckingham from Richard III. Each speech is accompanied by a character description, brief explanation of the context, and notes on obscure words, phrases and references - all written from the viewpoint of the auditioning actor.
