Monologues and scenes for women of color are hard to find. I went to the Austin Public Library today and although I found a few books that could help, the majority of them were for white actors. I have white women in my class but I also have African-American and Latina women and I want them to have a wide and rich selection when I start working from texts.
So if anyone wants to purchase this book for Conspire Theatre, it would be a huge boon. They don’t have it at the library and it would be good to own a copy of it.
If anyone knows of any other books or plays that feature women of color, that would be fantastic. I’m googling like a mad woman and scanning all of my plays at the moment but I could always use a helping hand!
Update: The fabulous Danea Johnson has purchased the book for us – thank you! We’ll be setting up an Amazon account soon for future wishes. Thanks for the support!
