Loquitur Theatre seeking female monologue for Edinburgh Fringe

The company name translates to ‘She Speaks’ and well, as per this ethos, Loquitur Theatre is committed to creating inspiring and exciting theatre, with women at the centre of every production.

They are delighted to announce their latest project ‘Fémage a Trois’ for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, to be performed at theSpace in week three of the festival.

Fémage a Trois is a trilogy of stories about three independent women as they come to terms with the circumstances they face and the choices they must make.

They are always very keen to work and develop new relationships with exciting and up and coming writers. As a result, they are curating brilliant new writing for the final monologue for this production. The material will sit alongside two other pieces from ground breaking playwrights: Charlotte O’Leary and Bruntwood Prize winner Anna Jordan.

What to submit:  The particular piece that they are currently searching for will centre on one more mature woman’s story in a moment of climactic stress, or at a point where she is faced with a difficult decision or perhaps has nowhere to turn.

No more than 20 minutes long, the piece must be human, deep, poignant but ultimately comedic – in whatever form the comedy takes, hilarious or dark; the comedy of humanity must shine through the monologue and support the audience engagement with the story.

The end result is this collective trio will demonstrate how fascinating, shocking, desperate and hilarious the normality of life can be.

How to apply:  The monologue should be in pdf format, sent to loulou@loquiturtheatre.co.uk with ‘Femage a Trois’ and your pen name in the subject line.

They will endeavour to reply to all submissions, and should you be unsuccessful at this point, please be rest assured that they will consider your material for future productions.

Deadline:  30 April 2016
