Breakwater Theatre Company- video monologue challenge

Breakwater Theatre Company is a new writing company based in Cleethorpes. They were due to perform Angel by Henry Naylor on Friday 17th April 2020 however, the production has had to be postponed due to the current Coronavirus situation. Instead of bringing a live theatre performance to the stage, they have decided to offer a creative challenge to others in the sector who may suddenly find themselves resting.

They want you to create a video of a brand-new monologue for our challenge.

They cannot pay everyone who enters but can offer a prize of £100 for the winning entry. Its really more about giving a voice to your creative side in the current climate.
