Contemporary Australian Monologues for Men

Currency Press
 
'This is particularly out of character for me.'

Monologues are a crucial element of theatre, for actors and students alike. From high school study to professional auditions and performances, the monologue exposes the heart of a play and the capacities of the performer.

The monologue should be relevant to the performer, and a revelation to the audience. This new collection brings together 30 monologues from contemporary Australian plays. These voices—from ages 14 to 84, from the 1880s to the near future—showcase the best of our national writing for the stage.

Patricia Cornelius is one of Australia’s most awarded and celebrated playwrights. She is known for her confronting plays that often deal with people living on the margins of society, struggling with poverty and prejudice. The Sydney Festival 2017 showcased three of Patricia’s plays, as well as a discussion with Festival Director Wesley Enoch.

This collection contains seven pieces of criticism on Cornelius’ plays SHIT, Who’s Afraid of the Working Class?, Do Not Go Gentle, The Berry Man and LOVE, written by Julian Meyrick, Hilary Glow, Tom Holloway, Susie Dee and Cornelius herself. Read Cornelius through her eyes, and through the eyes of her peers in theatremaking.

This is the first title in the Critical Studies Collection by Currency Press. Each title in the collection showcases an Australian playwright or a theatrical theme, through written criticism and audiovisual material. The sources range from recent publications through to rare books that are currently out of print. Complete with source listings and recommended further reading, this series is the ideal guide for students and teachers of theatre from the HSC to tertiary study.

JANE EYRE

Devised by THE COMPANY

Currency Press
 

Almost 170 years on, Charlotte Brontë’s story of the trailblazing Jane is as inspiring as ever. This bold and dynamic production uncovers one woman’s fight for freedom and fulfilment on her own terms.

From her beginnings as a destitute orphan, Jane Eyre’s spirited heroine faces life’s obstacles head-on, surviving poverty, injustice and the discovery of bitter betrayal before taking the ultimate decision to follow her heart.

This inventive staging of Brontë's masterpiece was first staged by Bristol Old Vic in 2014, when the story was performed over two evenings. Director Sally Cookson now brings her celebrated production to the National Theatre, presented as a single, exhilarating performance.

'This is a production full of intelligent detail... Original, engaging and unexpectedly funny... an adaptation that Charlotte Bronte herself might have approved.'   Telegraph
