Description

Auditioners often complain of seeing the same speeches over and over again. This book brings together 50 speeches for men from Shakespeare 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."
