Laughing Pig Theatre is seeking WRITERS and STORYTELLERS to write a personal monologue or story about feelings of “embarrassment.” We are seeking diverse storytellers willing to submit personal pieces that illustrate the full range of emotions part and parcel to the experience: humor, tragedy, everything in between. The only guideline is that it must be your original work. Length and exact theme is up to the writer as long as it is inspired by “embarrassment.” The submission deadline is February 2nd at 11:59pm.
Our team will select the final pieces that represent the theme. Selected monologues will be performed in our Monologue Cafe on March 22th, 23rd, 29th, & 30th. This event will be public, and video and audio recording is okay. As part of your submission, you give Laughing Pig Theatre the rights to utilize audio, video, and still images from the Monologue Cafe for professional purposes. You will retain all rights to your work. For future reproductions by Laughing Pig Theatre we will request your permission.
Should we select your piece, you will get a digital copy of the performance and a performance as a thank you. You are also welcome to perform your own piece but because of the sensitive nature of what we are asking, we do not require that you read your own work. We will have performers standing by to bring your words to life. If you choose to perform your monologue, you must be available and memorized on March 18th- 21st (7:30pm-10pm) for dress rehearsals and performances March 22nd, 23rd, 29th, & 30th (6:30pm-10pm).
Please contact us at email@example.com with questions. Thank you so much! We look forward to reading your story!
At Laughing Pig Theatre we are passionate about new works, and we want to help you develop your writing.
Submit your writing for a staged reading. We will set it up for you by finding performers, providing a space, and advertising it for you (depending on your needs). We will even facilitate a feedback session, so that you can continue to improve upon your work. This process is ideal for playwrights with scripts that are complete, but have not been heard out loud yet. Submit your work for a Staged Reading here.
We are also ALWAYS accepting new work submissions for our season. We would love to read your script to see if it will work for a future season. Submit your work here.
For any other questions, feel free to email us.
Laughing Pig Theatre is looking for new and interesting workshops to bring to the community.
We are looking for ALL arts disciplines, but it should be able to be covered during a single workshop. We love experimental theatre, but the world is your oyster. Some workshops we have done in the past include: Theatre of the Absurd, Theatrical Movement
Commitment: 1 workshop up to 5 hours (can continue to teach for Laughing Pig Theatre if there is availability)
