Duologues for All Accents and Ages

Front Cover
Taylor & Francis, 2002 - 208 pages
This collection of forty-five duologues is selected from a range of plays, from Elizabethan to contemporary. Jean Marlow and Eamonn Jones, both experienced teachers and working actors, have chosen duologues which vary in style, offer a range of emotions and include parts for a variety of accents and ages.
Much helpful advice is given in the book by contributors such as Tom Stoppard, April De Angelis, Don Taylor and representatives from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), Guildhall School of Music and Drama - both use duologues in their external exams - and The Actors' Centre.
