The Actors Centre

The World of the Monologue

WHAT IS IT? A workshop designed to make monologues dramatic worlds in which an actor can lose her/himself.

HOW WILL IT WORK? Dealing with classic monologue challenges – creating drama and conflict on your own, building an imagined world from only the words on the page, and how to feel totally comfortable flying solo - the workshop will be a process of presentation and observation. Participants should bring a learned monologue (approx. 2-3 mins) to present - classical or modern.

WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? This workshop is great for building audition material and/or creating a richer inner world using techniques that will filter through all your work. Price £30.
