Tue 5th – Sat 9th Mar 2013


“Eight compelling monologues delve into the apathy of a young generation which has lost the faculty of faith.”



From Millie the jolly-hockey-sticks prostitute to Danny, an ex-squaddie who makes friends in morgues, these monologues are dark, comic, and sometimes desperately sad.


Four monologues will be performed Tuesday and Wednesday and a different four on Thursday and Friday.

After each performance, the audience will vote for their favourite monologue, and these four will be performed again on the Saturday.


Performing Tuesday & Wednesday:

MILLIE || Alice Porter

ANDRÉ || Christopher Adams

MONA || Millie Chapman

MILES || David Shields

Performing Thursday & Friday:

JUDE || Lloyd Houston

ASTRID || Georgina Hellier

DANNY || Jo Allan

BOBBY || Phoebe Hames
