Duologues are scripts for two actors (duo, meaning two, instead of mono, meaning one, in monologue). A scene between two actors is an excellent way to practice your acting skills allowing you to focus on one other actor without interruption or disruption to the flow of the performance. Trusting other actors is important and working with another performer one on one is a good way to develop this trust. Duologues are ideal training tools for workshops and classrooms for this reason. Here are some good two actor scripts to practice developing your teamwork skills with a partner. Below are several scenes for two actors.

TIPS FOR NEW ACTORS (LISTENING)
When working with another actor, it is important to listen to them. Not only is it important to know your cue line (the line that comes before yours) but it makes for a better performance if you react to the other actor's emotions as well. Pay attention to what the other actor is saying, how they say it and the actions they make. Then look closely at your lines and decide how you should react. What would be a logical emotion to have in response? How should you move in response to the other actor's movements? And how should you say your line in reaction to the other actor?
(How to Start a Part Time Posse)

from the published play
"Control the Future"
(A customer, PAT approaches JULES who is a salesperson at a marketing firm)
I’d like to buy myself a crowd.
I’d like to buy a crowd… I heard you handle crowdfunding and I need a crowd. You know… like a posse?
That’s not exactly what crowdfunding is.
I want to look important and if I have a crowd following me around, that will make everyone think there’s something special about me.
I’m afraid that’s not exactly what we do.
When you’re growing up, everyone tells you that you’re special. Your parents, your teachers, your parole officer....
Parole officer? Um… maybe I should call someone.
Yes, call together my team… team Pat. Or maybe I should pick something more dramatic like Team Washington. Makes me sound like I’m a politician or something.
Are you a politician?
No, but I need that crowd. You going to help me?
Well… would these people be your employees? Or would they be a part time posse?
Part time would work… I’d just like them around at certain key times like school reunions, family gatherings and court dates… I need someone to cheer me on… I need someone who has my back. I need to be supported. I want to feel like I’m important and that I matter.
Actually, I think that’s what most people want.
Then maybe this is the start of new business… or a revolution! We could rent out the part time posse to other people with low self-esteem like me and help build them up. That will give them a nice little boost at key times in their lives.
Okay, I see what you’re saying. I’m starting to dig this.
So what do you say? You going to help me fund my crowd?
Well… I am in this band and we play every Friday night and not many people come. If I could rent them every Friday...
There you go… crowd... funded. Part time posse plan in motion.
You just need to fill out this online form.
On your computer.
I don’t have one.
Do you have a smart phone?
I don’t trust smart gadgets.
That explains why you didn’t know about crowdfunding. I’ll help with the online form then… any other questions before we get started?
Yeah… I’m curious about those news programs that you can talk to… where you can become the friends of the newscasters? I really like the morning news team on channel 13. I’d love to socialize with them.
I’m not sure I’ve heard of that.
You know… social media.
Oh! Well… um.... let’s tackle your crowdfunding first. Then we’ll… um… figure out the next one.
Then you gotta tell me how to keep people from googling me. That sounds creepy.
All in good time my friend. All in good time.
