NSDF 20: Demystifying the Audition Monologue

This workshop will help you mould a process for yourself when approaching a monologue, enabling you to take ownership and become your own director. We’ll go through how to push yourself when practising alone and different tools to work with what the writer’s given you and squeeze all the juice out. 

Please bring a play containing a 1-2 minute monologue with you. No need to learn it.
