More Alternative Shakespeare Auditions for Women

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.
