OUR FLAGSHIP EVENT: HOW IT WORKS?
At these monthly events at The Mono Box studio, you are invited to share The Mono Box’s unique play collection, attend a Q&A with well-known theatre professionals and show your speech to a director ahead of any impending auditions – all under one roof, and all in one day.
It breaks down into 3 sections and there are different booking combinations based on what you need:
Here, our unique collection of 3000 plays, which have been donated by directors, playwrights, publishers and actors working in the industry are displayed ready for you to find your perfect speech. Will you find a donation from Sir Derek Jacobi or find some advice from Sally Hawkins? Will you stumble upon David Tennant’s favourite play, or the play Dame Judi Dench says she’s never had the chance to be in?
Each play is catalogued and tabbed making your search for speeches easier than spending hours in the bookshop and our library is comfy too – with sofas, cushions and a coffee shop upstairs. Spend your time talking with The Mono Box team who will be around to help direct your search and give you advice on your choices.
Play Browsing with The Mono Box Team opens at 10am and closes at 1pm. You can turn up at any point within this time to read and get advice.
After PLAY BROWSING we open up the conversation with a panel of industry professionals in a Q&A. In this casual, friendly set up you can ask advice, express your worries and get some support on where you’re at from the people who are doing it. These are always lively discussions that help participants navigate their thoughts about working, not working and everything in between. Food for the soul.
The Q&A starts at 1.15pm and ends at 2.45pm.
In the afternoon you can perform a speech you’ve been working on to a guest director in a small group. This session is the perfect way to get your monologues out of your bedroom and into the ether, gaining tips for improvement and the confidence to go into the audition room.
Speech Showbacks run in groups of 8 people:
GROUP A = 3pm - 4.30pm
GROUP B = 4.45pm-6pm
