Mousetrap Theatre Projects announce the Mousetrap Monologue Slam

Video recorded monologues must be submitted by Friday 8th May 2020

The lights might be down in Theatreland, but now it’s your turn to step into the spotlight. From Monday 20th April to Friday 8th May, you have an extra special opportunity to seize the stage and show the nation what you’ve got!

Perform your favourite monologue from a show or film (or even one you’ve written yourself). Please state your name, the play/film that your monologue comes from (or if it’s self-written), and the character you are playing.

For more information, head to 

If you’d like, we’d love you to share your video with us on social media too, @MousetrapTP using the hashtag #MousetrapMonologueSlam.
