National award winning playwright, director and teacher, Mary Hall Surface, has penned MORE Short Scenes and Monologues for Middle
Schools Students. With this new collection she again captures the world of the middle-schooler
with honesty and insight.
Unique to this volume is the abundance of curriculum-connected content, inviting English and Social Studies teachers to bring Ancient and American history, literature,
science, and mythology to life. These original scenes and monologues are also a unique tool for character education. Here, students can
explore decision making, empathy, and the consequences of action in the experiential way that only drama can provide.
Best of all, drama teachers and students will find more of what made her first collection so popular:
30-second monologues with strong emotional turning points
ideal short audition pieces
Short two- and four-actor scenes with strong relationships and specific
objectives, perfect for contests and festivals
Multiple-actor scenes with equally weighted parts, drawn from
multicultural sources
A must for the library of every teacher, guidance counselor, school, camp, and student, this new volume is destined to win the praise of Mary Hall Surface s original collection.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6–9—This volume stands out for its distinct voices, multicultural characters, and engaging scenes. The book is well organized, with short monologues divided by gender in the first half and scenes with an incrementally increasing number of characters in the second. Some of the pieces have been adapted from longer plays and have well-developed characters. This book will be useful for classroom use, character work, ensemble work, and practice for students blocking and directing. Monologues range from historical (immigrants coming to America) to current (global warming) issues and are always presented from the young person's point of view. Dialogue is engaging and differs from piece to piece so students can work on pace and tone when speaking. The multicultural voices are realistically written with appropriate diction and rhythm to their speech. Surface also includes magical characters (a spirit cat, a cricket) as well as inanimate objects to give students a chance at playing nontraditional roles. This excellent book would be useful in a variety of classrooms including speech/communication, drama, English, and social studies.—Terrilyn Fleming, Colby Public Schools, KS
