Powerful, real, intimate, explosive: writers announced for 2019

Great news! We are excited to announce the final 20 writers in this year’s Monologue Adventure Voices of Women.

Submitted by 166 women writers all over Australia, the monologues explore the stormy seas and the safe havens of life. The stories and characters express the very real and powerful, intimate and explosive situations and imaginative journeys of women in Australia: yearning for home, a Stolen Generations memory, a hilarious attempt at predictive text, Beethoven and divorce, racism in the street and in job interviews, escaping an abusive relationship, jealousy, climate change, Instagram and breaking up, and more.

The writers include First Nations writers, emerging and established authors and writers from diverse cultural backgrounds. The women come from across the nation: from Kalamunda in Western Australia, Hallet Cove in South Australia, Lyra via Ballandean, Moreton Bay and Brisbane in Queensland, Newcastle, Young, Stanwell Park, Blacktown and Sydney in New South Wales, Canberra in the ACT, and Sale, Melbourne and Spotswood in Victoria.

Read about the writers and their stories HERE.

After sell out shows in 2018, this year the readings will transform Leichhardt Town Hall with five amazing women performers.

The readings are presented by four extraordinarily talented women actors: the amazing Julia Christensen, Sage Godrei, Clare Grant and Umima Shah-Munro and performance artist and artist Teena McCarthy.













Grab a ticket and join us at The Monologue Bar before or after each show.
