Monologues for drama students

Monologues are long speeches, delivered by a single character in a play. Students in High School often need monologues when audtioning for roles in theatrical productions. Although there are books with monolgues in them it has been difficult to find good Australian monologues. Sue Murray, a local Northern beaches writer and teacher has just published a new book called “Cooking with Hamlet and other solo dramas” which contains 15 original monologues. One monologue “seven miles from Sydney” is set in Manly. The book is available at Manly Library. Sue Murray’s website is at
