DUOLOGUES FOR 12-18 YEAR OLDS
Here are some great duologues – speeches for two characters – for young actors aged 12 - 18 years. These are ideal for speech and drama festivals, exams and audition practice. They would also work well as prompts for improvisation or scriptwriting activities in the drama classroom. Many of the duologues have been adapted from the play scripts available on this website – links to the relevant plays are included – and one is completely original. I have also included suggestions for other two-character scripts that would work well and provide a challenge for teenage performers. It’s advisable that any students performing in festivals read the whole play before working on their duologue. Knowing the whole of the text will give young actors a much stronger sense of their character, the context of the speech, and their place within the story.
