Product Description

From the Author

"When I wrote my first play, The Crackwalker, I gave each of the characters a monologue, framing the play—and they were all audience addresses. "Who are they talking to?" the actors would ask, in frustration. And I could only reply "the audience." I hated the idea of a phony set-up with a social worker, or a psychiatrist, or someone in the "listening" professions—to justify a long monologue; never explain, the monologue is part of a long theatrical tradition, it is direct, it is intimate. And there is no looking away from it, we must go on the journey of the monologue with the character, even if he or she is breathing fire that burns the air we breathe." (2011-10-13)

This book is full of many emotionally-moving, inspirational and daring monologues. It's everything you would expect from Judith Thompson. I'm very glad to have it in my library.

Unfortunately, the model of selected for women in this book are unrelentingly bleak - andronis in tirely from the Canadian social realism school.

HASH(0xa0736ea0) out of 5 stars I speak for 'She Speaks'. March 8 2007
By Max Glassco - Published on Amazon.com
Fabulous book; fabulous tool. Purchased 'She Speaks' for my 12 year old daughter as a tool for audition prep work. She was caught up in it and is reading if first as a collection of short stories. My daughter is thouroughly involved in the book and will enjoy it as a preperation tool so much more after reading, feeling and experiencing many of the situations captured by it's pages. A wonderful work.
