The Voices Project: 17 7-Minute Monologues for Young Actors (The Encore Edition)
|Author:||Australian Theatre for Young People|
First love. Death. Secrets. Food. Since its inception in 2011, The Voices Project has been cultivating the talents of the best young Australian actors and writers. Every year, twenty young Australian writers are chosen to each write a seven minute monologue for a young actor, bringing audiences the cutting edge of Australian theatre. Of these twenty, the best ten are chosen to be performed by some of the most talented young actors in Australia. But what about the rest? The Voices Project: The Encore Edition is a selection of the best of the rest. This selection of seventeen monologues takes the reader through the themes that have been explored in The Voices Project over the years, varying from first love to food, telling the stories of Australia. Witty, touching, and chilling, the monologues of The Voices Project explore, deconstruct, subvert, and poke fun at the ideals that make up teenaged Australia.
