Mercury Monologues in association with Josef Weinberger Ltd will see hopefuls submit a short monologue, lasting no longer than 4 minutes, each week.
Submissions will be judged by a panel of professionals as selected by the Mercury and Josef Weinberger. Each week a new winner will be announced, earning themselves a £100 prize, and the chance to have their monologue read and streamed to the Mercury’s social media channels and website, by a professional, paid actor.
The deadline to submit the first monologue, which will be on the theme of “Temptation”, is Sun 5 Apr. The first winning work will then be streamed the following Wednesday.
