In this volume you will find a collection of life experiences from throughout the many cultures that people our world. By design, we've challenged ourselves to offer a usable collection of monologues for young actors that will serve as exploration tools, while at the same time provide a journey rich in diversity. To be successful in this journey you will have to venture in to worlds that are not, perhaps, immediate to your own experiences...As with our prior collections for young actors, we've selected what we believe to be quality literature by significant writers. Once again we've included speeches from plays, first-person poetry, and cuttings from fiction.

Craig Slaight is the director of the Young Conservatory at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco. Jack Sharrar is director of academic affairs for the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco, where he also a core faculty member in the M.F.A. Program.From School Library Journal:
Gr 7 Up--Selections that cover the continents for 23 male and 21 female solo performers. Unfortunately, the authors have neglected not only to index the entries, but, in several cases, even to identify the characters' ethnic heritage. The monologues, while quite good, are copyrighted and, in many instances, subject to royalties. This carelessly tossed-together offering meets a need, but requires a hunt-and-peck method of finding an ethnic interest. The idea is great; the presentation is not.
