About the Book:

Masterclass: Women by Dean Carey is a unique handbook for actors, student actors and teachers.

Two separate handbooks, one for men, one for women. Each offers close to a hundred monologues by authors from around the world to provide an arsenal of audition pieces for young actors chosen from the whole of world drama — from classics such as Chekhov and Racine, to moderns including Berkoff, Gems, Henley, Miller, Thomson and Williamson.

In an extensive introductory section Dean Carey redefines and outlines the essential acting components and illuminates the creative process practically and passionately. He also presents a stimulating array of vital rehearsal room exercises to enliven and enrich your work – enabling you to challenge the limits of what you consider possible and invigorate your creative output.

What people say:

"Full of such essential truth that it seems at once revelatory and confirmatory. This book will give the actor a massive injection of self-confidence — at the same time propelling them into unknown territory. An affirmation of the actor's strength — instinct. Buy it!" — Hugo Weaving, actor: The Matrix, The Lord of the Rings, V for Vendetta, and Transformers

"Dean Carey's rapport with his students is marvellous." — Robert Benedetti, California Institute of the Arts

"This book is a 'must read' for any actor facing auditions, not only because it is practical, helpful and full of good ideas, but because Dean's entertaining examples and inspiring insight unite us all in a common love for the work and an aspiration to do our very best." — Gale Edwards, Theatre Director

"Good practical advice, backed up by sound common sense." — John Clark, Artistic Director of National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) for 35 years
