Alternative Shakespeare Auditions for Men
Routledge – 1998 – 128 pages
Dunmore brings together fifty speeches for men from plays frequently ignored such as Titus Andronicus, Pericles, and Love's Labours Lost. It also includes good, but over-looked speeches from the more popular plays such as Octavius Caesar from Antony and Cleopatra, Leontes from The Winter's Tale and Buckingham from Richard III. With character descriptions, brief explanations of the context, and notes on obscure words, phrases and references, it is the perfect source for a unique audition.
Simon Dunmore is an experienced director and teacher. He is the author of An Actor's Guide to Getting Work.
