MonologueSlam is an international 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 one minute round and three minute round, where each actor will perform a monologue of their choice. There’s also some entertainment provided by a music act whilst the judges make their decision on the winning monologues.

After a hugely successful 2016 debut in Los Angeles, MonologueSlam returns to TCL Chinese 6 Theatre on 6 November. 

The TCN regularly receive support from Film, TV and Stage stars such as Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out) Aml Ameen (Sense8) Karen David (Once Upon A Time) David Ajala (Falling Water) Oliver Stark (Into the Badlands) Dominique Tipper (Expanse) Nicholas Pinnock (Counter Part) Shavani Seth (Homeland) Duane Henry (NCIS) Chike Okonkwo (The Birth of a Nation) and Tehmina Sunny (Training Day) who all attend MonologueSlam UK.
