Subject:        Character Ages

Hello,

Is there a reference in a book or on the internet that lists all of the
character ages in Shakespearean plays?

As an actor and having to prepare 2 Shakespearean monologues I often am
not quite sure about some of the character ages.  Could someone please
help me with this?

I'm looking for male characters between the ages of 30-40.  What
Shakespearean characters are between the ages of 30-40?  I not just
looking for the major characters but any minor ones too.  If you want to
recommend any monologues that work well for auditions that would be a
bonus.  I find that soliloquies don't work as well for auditions, but
rather speeches that are involved in a dialogue.

Thanks,
Mark Alexander
