Introduction

I thought I had come up with a really great idea when I first decided to edit this book. If teen-aged actors were having such trouble finding material, then how great would it be to have a book that teenagers had written for themselves.

For over a year, I have been gathering monologue material from teenagers and I have read over 500 submissions. Some of the contributors are actors, others aspiring something-or-others, but they all have one thing in common: the teen experience. The pieces in this book run the gamut from comedic to dramatic, fantasy to reality, surreal to science fiction. They are all unique, original, and teen-written with the writers ranging in age from thirteen to nineteen years old. Actors, I have divided the book into four sections: Female Monologues/Comedy, Female Monologues/Drama, Male Monologues/Comedy, and Male Monologues/Drama. Many of these monologues are not gender-specific, so I encourage you to read them all in order to find the one that's just right for you. I have also included the author's name and age along with the city or school that he or she is from. My hope is that together we have provided student actors with yet another resource that will challenge the acting skills of their peer group, at the same time providing material that all teens can relate to. So, enjoy! And go forth and act!
