Book Overview
The unique format of this book will get students talking whether they're actors or not Duologs are not scenes for two people; rather, they are a pair of monologs about the same subject but from different viewpoints. Likewise, triologs offer three perspectives on the same topic, without the actors ever interacting. These can be great tools for opening up subjects for discussion or debate. Even the standard single monologs including in this creative collection touch on issues ripe for discussion for middle and high school students. The subject material of all these monologs, ranging from one to three minutes maximum, is honest and true to life. Best of all, you don't have to worry about inappropriate language or situations. These monologs don't skirt important issues that teens face today, but each situation is handled in a way that allows the actor, not the language, to be center stage. Monologs range from light-hearted topics -- blind dates, babysitting blues, and fender benders -- to more sensitive ones such as family problems, drunk driving, and suicide.
