Edited by Gerald Lee Ratliff

Includes Raccoon Ball

So well-liked was the first collection of these contemporary monologues that we offer this sequel by popular demand. The monologues are wildly funny, tragically sad and yet courageous. The ultimate journey for this collection is to create the possibility of living lovingly as equals in our modern world. The monologues are organized in chapter themes with brief sketches to set the scene. The collection features well-known playwrights - Arthur Miller, Wendy Wasserstein, August Wilson - and many superb, emerging new writers. There are several original monologs written especially for classroom discussion and exploration. Sample titles include: The Last Yankee by Arthur Miller, Raccoon Ball by Jeff Goode, The Underpants adapted by Steve Martin and Romantic Fools by Rich Orloff.
