Thanks very much, IMR.

Yes, the vast majority of the monologues included in the book are around the 2 minute mark. There are a few that are a little longer - useful for audition calls that want something lengthier - but most fall between the 1 to 3 minute mark.

I do actually have another book of monologues that's comprised of stand alone performance pieces. It's called Going Solo: One Act Plays for One Actor. Most of those run at around 15 to 20 minutes each, with one exception that runs at about 5 minutes. Most have been produced at various theatre festivals in the US and the UK, but not combined together - though they certainly could be.

I really enjoy writing long form monologues as they give you the opportunity to really immerse yourself in a character and tell their story from a very focused perspective. It's something I definitely intend to do more of in the future.

Anyway, thanks again for your interest.

All the best,
