We are thrilled to announce the publication of our newest book - The "Biggie" and Other One-Act Plays, Volume 1, by Albert Meglin, a collection of one-act plays and dramatic monologues, released this month. (Volume 2 will be out in June) With Volume 1, we have created what the market needs - a great collection of new, never before produced material for actors of all ages, ethnicities and skill levels, that could be used at the college/university level, for community theatre, and even regional theatre productions. The material is especially fresh and funny, and suitable for auditions and classroom exploration, as well as showcase and waiver productions. The "Biggie" and Other One-Act Plays contains six one-act plays, and two dramatic monologues, and includes both comedies and drama. Roles vary from ages 15 to 75, with the majority of characters castable by actors in their 20s and 30s.
As regular attendees at graduating student showcases, and actor's showcases and scene nights, year after year we come away with the same thought: the scenes lack imagination and are often unactable, characters are not well written, the material borders on psycho drama and actors are not showcasing their craft and potential well enough to prove their hireability. We said "enough already, it's time for some new stuff..." and set out to create it. The result is a stunning collection with a fantastic wealth of material for actors, and young actors in particular, that provides a great read for anyone interested in dramatic literature as literature.
