A NOTE from event organizer Jillian Carter:
Hello, fellow playwrights!
Thank you to all those who attended and/or participated in our first Solo Tales and Ales in November. It was a smashing success, featuring seven monologues, four playwrights, seven actors, and with over forty audience members.
Since it was so well received, we have decided to make it a regular occurrence, aiming for every quarter. Our next Solo Tales and Ales will be on Sunday, February 9, at The Happy Raven at 6pm.
If you would like to have a monologue read, please send it to me no later than January 19. This is also the date of our next collective meeting, so feel free to give it to me then.
Monologues should be no more than five minutes in length and observe the three elements of a good monologue: a specific character voice, a need to speak, and a journey.
I look forward to featuring more of our fantastic playwrights in this unique opportunity to hear your work read and to receive immediate feedback. It was a truly rewarding experience as both a playwright and an event coordinator, and I'm excited to continue it.
Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
