Call for Monologues – Now Open

Calling all female writers.

Baggage Productions is looking for original monologues written by women for a season in November 2011. Baggage hopes to present over 20+ new monologues performed by different actors. The monologues are planned for three separate nights, and will be directed by a selection of Melbourne directors.

We are excited to highlight the work of female writers, celebrate the monologue as a form and showcase Melbourne performers and directors.

Submission details:

  • Monologues must be between 1 and 10 mins.
  • Monologues can be on any topic or theme. Please try to keep elaborate costumes and props to a minimum (unless you can supply them.)
  • Be as imaginative and creative as you like. We classify a monologue as a single performer on stage as the focus of whatever is happening.
  • Monologues can be for any gender.
  • Multiple entries are accepted and welcomed.

Please note:

  • Participation will be unpaid for all.
  • All casting will be finalised and decided by Baggage productions.
