30 Oct

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 30 October 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.

Lorna Sutara Gee aka Lorna Gayle is an artist who remains synonymous with the British Reggae sub-genre of Lovers Rock.

Born and raised in Brixton, South London, The multi-talented performer began her foray into music during the late 1970s. She was a pioneering female presence on male-dominated sound systems such as Saxon, Coxsone and Nasty Rockers.

Lorna has released a number of hit singles since the 1980’s including Three weeks gone – Mi Giro’ Stop Chat’Singalong’ and Don’t go crazy’ However, it was the 1985 heartfelt ‘Gotta Find a Way’ that placed her at the top of the Reggae charts for six weeks, for which she received recognition with two BBC Radio London Reggae Awards for Best Female artist in 1985 and 1986.

Well-respected by her musical peers, Lorna performed alongside Paul Weller, Madness and Junior Giscombe on the Red Wedge tour, a prominent 1986 Labour party voting drive. Lorna’s passion for global justice through politics again became apparent at the 1988 AAA (Artistes Against Apartheid) concert in which she appeared with Sade, Boy George, Gil Scott-Heron, Sting and Maxi Priest.

Lorna has been crowned one of the Queens of Lovers Rock with fellow singers Janet Kay and Carroll Thompson. She was presented with the prestigious Lovers Rock gala award for her contribution to Lovers Rock music at The Brixton Academy in Sept 2008.

When Lorna returned to England she went back to her first love, acting. She spent three years at one of the country’s top drama schools, Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art. Her acting career has been extremely successful to date

Since graduating, Lorna appeared alongside Christian Bale and Heath Ledger in the Batman Movie ‘Dark Knight’ and has also been seen in popular TV series including; Dancing on The Edge, Doctors, Torchwood and Eastenders, Holby City.
