On September 6, the Hear Me Out Monologue Competition will host its Labor Day Finalist Festival. The 13 finalists will perform and winners will be selected by Gretchen Cryer, Gary Garrison, Christine Toy Johnson, Craig Lucas, Austin Pendleton, and Charlayne Woodard.

Hear Me Out Monologue Competition:

  • Started by Roland Tec (writer/teacher/ producer) because all of the Zoom productions he saw felt very disconnected as actors could not speak directly to each other (regardless of where their camera was or where they looked)- so monologues are a perfect digital art form, one person with direct address.
  • It has over $10K in cash prizes – sort of unheard of for an open to all writing competition.

Tickets can be purchased by visiting Eventbrite.
