MIRRORS Monologues From Women’s Lives

Mirrors, mirrors, mirrors, they follow us throughout our lives. From Sleeping Beauty's looking glass to the middle school bathroom to the department store dressing room, we are surrounded by mirrors, images and reflections.

We are looking for one to three page dramatic monologues from women across the country. Each monologue must relate to a mirror in some way. We hope to hear from women of all ages, backgrounds, sexual orientations, ethnicities, abilities, educational attainment, religions, and experiences.

We want both serious and humorous pieces about a time when you looked in a mirror and felt a strong emotion. For example, your first eyeglasses, braces, graduation, wedding day, pregnancy, important job interview and your changing self-image on milestone birthdays.

We are creating a dramatic script composed of monologues that illustrate the impact of mirrors on women throughout their lives. Click on the tabs above for guidelines and the submission form. The initial 90-minute staged reading of these new scripts will take place in New York City in the Spring of 2014. Winners will receive notice at least six weeks before the showcase, and once confirmed, their names will appear on this website.

The creators of THE MIRROR MONOLOGUES hope this project will lead to collaborations with theatrical communities across the country.
