Finally, an anthology of scenes designed specifically for the young female actor. Sixteen female playwrights, some emerging (Jessy Arden, Alison McLean, Tricia Cooper), some established (Maureen Hunter, Margaret Sweatman, Yvette Nolan), join forces to ensure young female actors will no longer have to settle for drab scenes based in female stereotypes. Actors can practice their craft playing roles ranging from environmental terrorist to female chauvinist pig; from welfare recipient to single mother of a young Leonardo Da Vinci. Generation NeXXt not only delivers exciting roles that are gender- and age-appropriate, it offers a collection of scenes young women can really sink their teeth into.
