As submissions come thick and fast for this year’s Monologue Adventure, we’re excited to announce the tickets for the readings are now live. Be immersed for just under an hour in intimate readings of powerful short stories in the first person on MAY 12 and MAY 13.
Submitted by women writers all over Australia, the monologues explore the stormy seas and the safe havens of life. After sell out performances in 2018, this year the readings will transform Leichhardt Town Hall, part of #edge supported by Inner West Council. The monologues cover the stormy seas and safe havens of our lives and range from topics as diverse as the Stolen Generation, the Barrier Reef, struggling with auto text on mobile phones, LGBTIQ+ stories, relationships with mothers, fathers, daughters, friendships that stand the test of time and more.
The readings are presented by four powerful women actors: the amazing Julia Christensen, Sage Godrei, Clare Grant and Umima Shah-Munro.
We are excited to welcome Umima Shah-Munro this year. Umima Shah-Munro is a 20 year old Indigenous woman from Darwin, N.T. Umima has been in a number of Browns Mart Theatre Productions in Darwin, her most notable role being Tituba in The Crucible. Umima is currently in first year at the National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA) undertaking the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Acting).
The stories will be curated on April 14, and we will be releasing the results of the final readings then. Verity La creative arts online journal will also curate the top 5 and publish on their amazing website and the final stories will be published here on Content and Cultural Projects.
