Monologue Slam Feb 2019


MonologueSlam UK is back at Theatre Royal Stratford East, bringing you the newest and most exciting talent in the UK!

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.
