BIPOC Student Playwrights – Chosen Monologues

Recently we called out to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour) student writers to share their voices and perspectives through their original monologue submissions.

We were thrilled with the incredible response we had to our call-out and so thankful to all who shared their work with us.

Congratulations to the following student playwrights whose monologues have been chosen for publication in a Theatrefolk resource book to be released later this year.
