One on One: The Best Mens Monologues for the 21st Century (Applause Acting Series) by Henry, Joyce

Compiled by the same team that recently edited One on One: The Best Womens Monologues for the 21st Century, this book covers the best of Broadway, Off-Broadway, regional, and experimental theatre writings since 2000. It challenges actors to explore the inner self, develop skill and artistry for auditions, and deliver a knockout onstage performance. Tackling issues of race, class, and gender; reactions to 9/11 and the Iraq war, the new compendium - by turns comic and serious, and sometimes both - depicts young, middle-aged, and older characters caught in the truths of our time. More than 80 playwrights were brought together to demonstrate this dramatic form. Neil LaBute exposes embarrassment that threatens a romantic relationship (Fat Pig); John Patrick Shanley portrays the rituals of boys becoming men on the basketball court (Doubt); A. R. Gurney shows the unconscious at work in a polite game of tennis (Big Bill); David Rabe contemplates a larger awareness (The Dog Problem); and Spalding Gray, in one of his last monologues (The Anniversary), confronts the mortality of everyday life and reaches out to those he loves.
