‘Earth is Cancelled’ Original Monologue Competition starts August 25!
All of humanity has been upended amidst a global pandemic and mass protests. In the US, we are also facing great odds to secure fair and safe elections in November.
On this 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, Nora’s Playhouse encourages you to protest with the power of art! We are calling on the women of Earth to:
1. Create and perform an original monologue characterizing an experience of life since COVID-19. This can be from personal experience or imagined through someone else’s eyes.
2. Record a performance of your monologue (no more than 5 minutes long), and
3. Submit directly to our official Earth is Cancelled Facebook event by Monday, September 7 at 11:59 EDT to be considered in one of our two prize categories: Fan Favorite and Critics’ Pick. (The event will go live on the morning of Tuesday, August 25… stay tuned for the link.)
We encourage you to get to work on your piece now! Our Fan Favorite will be decided by the monologue with the most likes. The sooner you post your submission once the event goes live, the better your chances of winning! We want your magnificent work to get maximum exposure!
Our Executive Board at Nora’s will vote to decide which submission is the Critics’ Pick.
The two winners will be announced on Thursday, September 10. The winning monologues will be re-posted to Nora’s Facebook page and each winner will receive a $50 cash prize. Nora’s Playhouse will also make a $50 donation in each winner’s name to Equal Justice Initiative.
