MonologueSlam is a nationwide industry showcase for actors from all backgrounds. 22 actors are given the opportunity to perform for a welcoming audience and a panel of industry professionals who are in a position to move their careers forward. This event helps performers that may not have access to the usual routes into the industry and provides agents and casting directors with an avenue to source fresh talent.

The show consists of a youth round (performers aged between 11-17) 1 minute round and 3 minute round, where each actor will perform a monologue of their choice.

See what London has to offer on 5th March  2018 at Theatre Royal Stratford East.

At TriForce, we’re committed to making our events accessible to everyone. MonologueSlam London is held at Theatre Royal Stratford East which is an accessible venue. Find out more here.
