Description

Actors of colour need the best speeches to demonstrate their skills and hone their craft.

Each monologue comes with an introduction and notes on the characters and stage directions to set the scene for the actor.





This new edition now includes more of the most exciting and accomplished playwrights to have emerged over the 15 years since the Monologues for Actors of Color books were first published, from new, cutting edge talent to Pulitzer winners.

Review quote

"Actors - these voices will fly off the page into performance. Inspired! Relevant! Now!"ã


Kamilah Forbes, Artistic Director, Hi-Arts/Hip Hop Theater Festival


These ferocious literary voices inspire me, intimidate me, empower my pen, and smash open my expectations of what a play can be. They provide gifts for actors, in the form of complex characters and throbbing language. I'm thrilled to share the page with them.


Quiara Hudes, Pulitzer Prize Winning Playwright


"Every actor needs something to play. This book on a practical level gives actors of many different backgrounds additional material for going out there and giving it their all."


Anna Deavere Smith, Playwright and Actor
