About the Book:

Includes monologues by: Ronnie Burkett, Drew Carnwath, Florence Gibson, Linda Griffiths, Daniel MacIvor, Yvette Nolan, Djanet Sears, Jason Sherman, Judith Thompson, Colleen Wagner and many others.

What people say:

"A monologue must give voice to those who have been silenced. The speaker must urgently need to speak, to proclaim, to persuade, to incite, to inspire, to agitate, to fabricate, to contaminate or whitewash, to justify; the speaker needs approval, or absolution, or acclaim, or worship, or laughter or sympathy. The monologue can only happen if the speaker has an audience. The monologue is ultimately the electric interaction between the audience and the speaker." — Judith Thompson, from the introduction
