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.
Below are scenes with 2 males, 1 male and 1 female, and 2 females.

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?
