A key strength of Trinity’s Acting exams is the freedom of choice on offer when selecting repertoire for your exam, but sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming to narrow down your picks. These new resources can serve as a great starting point, with suggestions for solo exams at every grade, from Initial to Grade 8.
The resources offer suggestions for play extracts suitable for each solo grade, with monologue suggestions included for Initial to Grade 3. For the higher grades – Grade 4 and above – the resources offer suggestions for a variety of extracts that are contrasting, such as different styles, moods, genres, periods or originating from different cultures. The resources also cover suggestions for mimes that can be performed as part of Initial-Grade 4 exams, and examples of devised reworkings for Grades 4-8.
Trinity has pooled examples from a variety of diverse sources, including works from traditional playwrights like Shakespeare and Oscar Wilde to more modern texts by August Wilson and Kae Tempest.
The resources provide practical suggestions for how the pieces can be performed as part of the exam, along with a range of top tips to help you feel fully prepared ‘on the day’, whether that be face-to-face with the examiner or a recorded submission for a digital exam.
