The success of One-Act Plays for Acting Students prompted this follow-up book of twenty-eight contemporary short dramas by nationally known playwrights. Each play has a production time of ten to fifteen minutes, yet each script is a complete work -- no cuttings. Most plays are for two actors -- one woman and one man. Also included are plays for two women, two men, three actors and monologs. No other play anthology offers as wide a selection of characterizations. Twenty-three contemporary American playwrights are represented, including William Borden, Julianne Bernsteln and Bryan Harnetiaux. Also featured are sections on Securing Rights for Your Production and Rehearsing the Play, a booklist of rehearsal helps and a list of additional scripts by the anthology playwrights. Plays are excellent for forensic competitions and classroom use. Some of the plays include: I Wanna Be a Cowboy by John Tuttle, Marla, You're On by Julianne Bernsteln, Hangman by William Border, The Lemonade Stand by Bryan Harnetiaux, Help Me, I'm Becoming My Mother! by Deanna Riley.Bert, Norman A. is the author of 'More One-Act Plays Acting for Students An Anthology of Short One-Act Plays for One to Three Actors', published 2003 under ISBN 9781566080873 and ISBN 1566080878.
