Duologues for Teenage girls

    Hi all. I teach a group of kids for their LAMDA exams and I'm having real trouble finding a duologue for two 13 year old girls. One of them can play older, up to 20 maybe. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to any good ones? Thanks in advance.

    Hello

    Take a look at "The Children's Hour" by Lillian Hellman - set in a girls boarding school. It's been a long time since I have looked at it so I cant remember the best passages for dualogues but it's a great play, so worth a look at.

    Or there's "Daisy pulls it off" but that might be a bit obvious.

    Or if there are good enough you could get them to tackle the Helena/Hermia arguement in A Midsummer Nights Dream.

    Hope that helps a bit x

    Look at "ROAD" by Jim Cartwright. Slightly stylized dialogue but good stuff.

    Try "Essex Girls" by Rebecca Pritchard. It is quite a difficult play to get hold of but the first half is based entirely round a group of 14 or 15 year old girls in a school toilet. You may have to be relatively careful about what section you chose out of it because it may be a bit 'old' for them but there are some really good bits that they could have a lot of fun with.

    There's great company called dramatic lines that do all kinds of books monolgues and duologues and more, generally aimed at the teenage market for this kind of thing. They are generally quite punchy and some are prety hard hitting. They go down very well with LAMDA exams and with festivals:
