Call for Monologues: Illuminated Dresses

web site

Deadline: March 17, 2018

We are seeking monologues about a transformation while putting on (or taking off) a dress. (“Dress” can be a uniform, costume, smock, etc.) This experience could be connected to a ritual, magic, an awakening, an everyday epiphany. A few questions to consider: Why this dress? Why now? (How) does the dress fit? How does the person feel in this dress? What does the person want to do in or to the dress? Are there regrets? Expectations? What doors might open or close?

Selected scripts will be pitched as a project for the upcoming Women's Theatre Festival in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Submission guidelines:

  • Submit one monologue up to to five minutes long. (Please time it by reading it aloud.) Each entry must be original, in English. Author must own copyright. Entry should be double-spaced, in Courier or Times New Roman 12-point font, using one-inch margins. 
  • Include author’s name and contact information on the title page. 
  • Put your last name and the word “monologue” in the subject line. 
  • Send as a Word or pdf attachment to mebanepoetry@gmail.com. 

Deadline is midnight March 17, 2018.
