About the Book:

Monologues for Latino/a Actors is an anthology of monologues from published plays.

Editor Micha Espinosa has gathered the first collection of contemporary monologues from a group of 42 Latina and Latino playwrights working in the United States. Subtitled A Resource Guide to Contemporary Latino/a Playwrights for Actors and Teachers, the book Monologues for Latino/a Actors is organized a little differently than most published collections of monologues.

Each chapter is arranged in several sections:

• About the Playwright
• List of Plays
• Playwright Information
• Performing the Monologues
• The Monologues

The underlying concept of Monologues for Latino/a Actors is that performers can do their best work if they truly understand the point of view of the piece. Each monologue includes a summary of the idea behind the scene, and a description of the solo character.

What people say:

"This volume is the first of its kind, a meticulously researched and documented collection of monologues from a rich diversity of Latina and Latino playwrights. Actors will finally have a resource that virtually defines the wealth of playwrights expressing their unique visions of the New American Theatre." — Jorge A. Huerta, renowned scholar and leading authority on contemporary Chicana/o and US Latina/o theatre

"This is the book that every professional Latina/o actor, teacher and student has been waiting for: a must-have treasure trove of material and information. This book is a seriously practical, incredibly inclusive, brilliant snapshot of the very best Lationo playwrights. Every student, every acting teacher, every library must have this welcomed-sight of a book." — Henry Godinez, award-winning, Cuban-American actor, director, and professor of theatre
