Event Description

Bishop Arts Theatre Center partners with Pittsburgh artist Gab Cody to offer The Monologue Project showcase on February 8, 2021 via Zoom. The event will include a selection of monologues from TMP workshop participants led by nationally recognized writers France-Luce Benson, Pia Wilson, Stacy Rose and Amy Evans. The Monologue Project (TMP), a free online resource, aims to increase the number of audition-length monologues written specifically for Women of the African Diaspora. Over (30) playwrights across the country contributed to TMP including notably Dominique Morrisseau, Chisa Hutchinson and Dave Harris. Gab Cody launched TMP in Pittsburgh in 2016 and Bishop Arts Theatre Center presented the work in 2017 in Dallas. In 2018, Cody and BATC Executive Artistic Director, Teresa Coleman Wash, co-produced the work in New York during the Dramatists Guild of America national convention. Beginning in October 2020, TMP workshop series presented a two-stage offering this 2020 - 2021 season centering high school and college students of color, with generous support from The Dramatists Guild Foundation. When the workshops conclude, students will work with professional playwrights to present a performance of a selection of monologues, directed by Ashland New Play Festival and Carnegie Mellon University’s Kyle Haden.
