    I'm really struggling to find a contemporary monologue for auditions, can anyone point me in the direction of some good plays with female young adult monologues? I'll read the play of course. I've already got a classical monologue. I thought maybe A Taste of Honey, but I don't want to buy a play and find there isn't a monologue hahaha. Help? x

    I'd advise against picking a monologue just because it ticks all your boxes. It can be the perfect part on paper but if you don't feel that speech in your bones every time you go to perform then its a waste of time and the panel will spot it in seconds. It has to be something you fall in love with.

    Try using monologue compilation books as spring boards that link you to other works. I found mine when I searched for something on Amazon and started following links off the page to the recommended items.

    Google books is good too, sometimes you can get a snippet of some compilations or plays without having to buy the book.

    I've found quite a few plays I like the sound of, I just can't find if they have any appropriate monologues and don't want to buy the plays and find that there isn't one in there. I'll keep looking, thank you! x
