Original Monologue Contest & Fundraiser

Talking Horse (Columbia MO) is once again looking for original monologues from writers to be performed online for a special fundraising campaign.

Our audience will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite piece and the winner will receive a cash prize!*

What do we mean by monologue?

In theatre and literature, a monologue is an extended speech by one character in a story. In theatre, it typically includes the verbal delivery of a character’s thoughts or speech to another character.

The 2022 Original Monologue Contest entry should be three to seven minutes in length and may include any topic.

Who can participate?
