Laughing Pig Theatre is seeking WRITERS and STORYTELLERS to write a personal monologue or story about “walls” (both emotional and/or physical walls). 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. Length and exact theme is up to the writer as long as it is inspired by “walls.” The submission deadline is June 23rd at 11:59pm.
Our team will select the final pieces that represent the theme. Selected monologues will be performed in our Monologue Cafe on July 27th & 28th. This event will be public, 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.
Should we select your piece, you are welcome to perform 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 available and memorized on July 24th and 26th (7pm-10pm) for dress rehearsals and both performances July 27th & 28th (6:30pm-10pm).
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and to submit. Thank you so much! We look forward to reading your story!
