audio collection

Speech Share is a podcast hosted by The Mono Box's Co-Founders, Polly Bennett and Joan Iyiola. They talk with some of the nation's most admired actors about their journey through the profession, a stand play that they have been involved in, and a performance of their favourite monologue.

THE AUDIO COLLECTION
As a source of inspiration we have created an audio library collection of monologues from these episodes as a free resource for our community. Listen to their chosen speech, and then click back to the full episode to hear how they came to perform it. 

Simply click on the face of the actor to hear their speech.
