Laughing Pig Theatre wants your monologues related to and inspired by personal experiences of sexual assault, the abuse of privilege and power, and challenging the status quo. We are seeking diverse storytellers willing to submitting personal pieces that illustrate the full range of emotions part and parcel to the experience: humor, tragedy, everything in between. The only guideline is that it must be your original work. These works will be performed in Laughing Pig Theatre’s Monologue Cafe, March 23rd-25th, 2018, at the Mesa Arts Center. Submissions are due January 27th, 2018.
You are welcome to perform with us in 2018, but because of the sensitive nature of what we are asking we do not require that you read your own work. We will have performers standing by to bring your words to life. If you choose to perform your monologue, you must be memorized on March 21st and 22nd for dress rehearsals. All performances will occur on March 23rd, 24th, and 25th.
Submissions are due January 27th, 2018. The Monologue Cafe will be a public event, and video and audio recording is ok. As part of your submission, you give Laughing Pig Theater the rights to utilize audio, video, and still images from the Monologue Cafe for professional purposes. You will retain all rights to your work. For future reproductions by Laughing Pig Theatre we will request your permission.
