Monologue Playground


Monologue Playground is an exciting new offering from WAYTCo for secondary drama students, due to run in the April school holidays. It’s a Training-with-Performance-Outcome, TPO, intensive focussed on all things Monologue and culminating in a closed showing of solo pieces.


Taking a leaf out of 24hr Play Generator, monologuers have 36hrs to LEARN from some of Perth’s top professional artists, REHEARSE their piece, and PERFORM before invited guests in our fully equipped Theatre Lab*.

Students will be supported to work with both scripted and devised monologues and to try a range of techniques to enhance their delivery.

Only offered to secondary students enrolled in Year 11/12 drama, each run of Monologue Playground will be offered two-stream, with capacity for 10 students/stream, or a total of 40 students.
