    When applying to a drama uni/school and presenting monologues, I know that the contemporary monologue has to be more recent but alot of the examples people use were written in the 80/70's. Is it frowned upon at drama uni and school auditions to perform a very recent contemporary monologue? The one I want to do ("goodbye charles"), was written in 2012.

    The date it was written isn't massively important - just that the monologue uses contemporary language/speech

    I've asked for this to be moved to the Performing arts and music university courses forum
