Playwright/Editor Jocelyn A. Beard, a veteran of NYU's film school and the Yale School of Drama, has edited almost forty monologue books for Smith and Kraus. Her Screenplay, Igor and the Lunatics, was made into a feature film and subsequently listed in Heavy Metal magazine as "One of the 10 Sleaziest Movies Ever Made!" Notwithstanding, Jocelyn lives in an old haunted house in the Hudson River Valley with her husband, Kevin Kitowski, their beautiful daughter, Blythe, and lots of dogs.From Library Journal:
This compilation of 45 scenes from recent plays, involving various combinations of performers, is indispensable to acting coaches and actors in training but completely useless to others. Good training requires access to contemporary scenes, so this anthology will be snapped up by needy actors and coaches. The theater, though, is our most human art form, and scenes out of context can only result in technically correct performances, lacking in characters we care about. Without the entire work, the reader has to be content with channel surfing through some impressive works by playwrights like John Osborne, Joyce Carol Oates, Alan Aykbourn, and Brian Friel. Recommended only for collections serving actors and their coaches.
