I have been shopping around and I really want to go to ALRA. I really want to find some brilliant pieces to do ( I am 24, 5'5", dark red hair and curvy) ALRA seem to have extremely anal guidelines and I am so lost in where to turn in finding a modern piece. The guidelines are as such:
You need to:
prepare two audition monologues* each lasting no longer than two minutes:
>. one from a contemporary play
(after 1950, but not any play by Stephen Berkoff, Sarah Kane or John Godber)
>. one from Shakespeare
(but not non-human characters like Puck from 'A Midsummer Night’s Dream' or Ariel from 'The Tempest', or any Chorus)
* Monologues – please make sure you have read the plays your monologues come from. Be sure your monologue works as a stand alone speech and does not require input from another character.
We want you to:
>. choose pieces that match your age and gender and do not require a change of accent.
>. choose pieces that demonstrate communication with (an)other character(s).
>. choose pieces that have an emotional journey.
>. choose pieces that have a significant moment of change.
>. work without props or special costume.
>. avoid using chairs. Although it is acceptable to sit down, to remain seated throughout the speech gives us less opportunity to assess your physical characterisation.
Does anybody have any idea of any pieces? I would be so grateful..thanks xxx

Have a look at The Winter's Tale; Hermione has some good speeches that should fit that criteria.
