Editor Craig Pospisil has drawn exclusively from Dramatists Play Service publications to compile this collection, which features over fifty monologues. You will find an enormous range of voices and subject matter, characters from their teens to their seventies and authors from widely varied backgrounds, some well known, others less so, but all immensely talented. This selection represents some of the best writing in the American theatre today, and we are proud to bring them together in these two volumes.
