London MonologueSlam Winners!

Monday night was such a fantastic MonologueSlam UK and the set at Theatre Royal Stratford East was a spooky forest perfect for a Slam on Halloween!  On the judging panel we had casting director Aisha Walters, Channel 4 commissioning executive Manpreet Dosanjh, development coordinator Lisa Walters, also with Channel 4, Litz Butcher agent at McLean-Williams and director Rupert Such.

Our Youth Round winner was Emmanuel Akinbami with a piece by Omar El-Khairy, while Joy Adeogun earned the judges’ Special Mention with her performance from Romeo & Juliet.  The 1 Minute Round Special Mention Winner was Ricky Oakley who smashed it with a Dennis Kelly piece, and Richard Rowe-McGhie, also performing a piece by Kelly, bagged the 1 Minute Round prize, rendering him speechless!

In the 3 Minute Round, the Special Mention was earned by Jayne Edwards with a wonderful self-written piece, and the winner of the heavyweight round was Reece Miller with a monologue by Alexi Kaye Campbell.  Richard, winner of the 1 Minute Round, was also named the Overall Winner and will be invited to perform in the Winners Edition MonologueSlam back at Theatre Royal Stratford East on 12 December.

The night was hosted by the fabulous Chizzy Akudolu (Holby City), complete with a decorative cobweb for the occasion and we had DJ Webslinger on the decks with great tracks between performers.

Our special guest was singer-songwriter Ryan Carty who soothed us with his soulful vocals and Shoot From the Hip cracked us up with some darker turns to the jokes to suit the night with their hilarious improv.

All the winners receive goody bags from our wonderful supporters at Spotlight.

I adore all that TriForce are, do and represent. I feel exceptionally lucky for all that you've given me. I'm in a great place, with a new agent - Gordon and French - and my second TV job ahead. I honestly wouldn't be in this place without the support and opportunities given to me through The Actors Gym with the fabulous Babou, MonologueSlams and ongoing advice and guidance from the entireTriForce team. THANK YOU!

I’ve been to Monologue Slam twice and have been amazed by the level of talent I’ve seen. It’s a great evening and a chance to meet new actors. It’s led to actors coming to meet with us and even gaining roles in some of our projects. I can’t wait to go again.
