“It’s Been One Week,” the return of our monologue-writing competition!
Playwrights and performers are paired into 7 teams for a week-long competition. Teams had one week to write, rehearse, and perform a memorized, brand-new, 2-5 minute monologue based on the prompt randomly assigned to them. A panel of judges will award $150 to the creative team behind the “best monologue”!
