MonologueSlam UK Coventry Winners!
Last night MonologueSlam made its debut at the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry! We had an all female judging panel, with agent Kate O’Reilly, directors Finley-Rose Townsend, Jennifer Davies and Balisha Karra, and as well as the Belgrade Theatre’s very own Kim Hackleman. And it was a debut too for our new host Smash Entertainz, stepping in for our regular host Dean Smith. It was a great night with a packed audience – we’ll be back next year and I’d recommend booking tickets in advance!
We were entertained by singer Samaro Phox during the judges deliberations and a good job too as it took our judges sometime to decide – the level of talent was incredibly high and their job was not easy!

Yasmin Allam-Pinnock won the Youth Round with her performance of her self written piece, Stockholm Syndrome, while Peter Burley took the One Minute Round title with the monologue Albion by Chris Thompson. Our Three Minute Round winner was Sachin Sharma with a monologue from Adrift by Marcus Youssef. Sachin was our Overall Winner and will be representing Coventry at the National Final in London in next month. Well done to our winners!
It was a tough decision for the judges, they awarded a total of 4 Special Mentions! From left to right we have Thapelo Ray (Youth Round), Gabriel Okafor (Youth Round), Damian Grecu (1 Minute Round) and Dwayne Brown (3 Minute Round).
