(Spot center stage)
(Enter JACK and THOMAS)
We don't like auditioning with monologues. I thought acting was reacting we say, staring blankly at a spot on the wall trying "to live truthfully under given imaginary circumstances".1
Searching for monologues is laborious. A professor once told me the best way to find them: Google the word "play," your gender, and a few adjectives. There had to be a better way.
Its sort function narrows your search by character, age, type and length. And every monologue's title helps spark your actor mind: a scene partner along with actions, images, or tone.
We sincerely hope Monolog'd will help you enjoy auditioning a little bit more.
(Winks at JACK)
Monolog'd is an online audition monologue database for actors. Monologues are sorted by the individual characteristics of an actor, character gender and age, and by audition criteria, type (comedic or dramatic) and estimated performance length.
We also add a few words to the sort results that say something unique about the monologue. These combined features let actors focus on the most relevant audition monologues and avoid spending time researching ones that aren't.
Monolog'd was founded in 2015 by Jack Schultz (an actor) and Thomas Queen (an entrepreneur), and is a Trend Industries project.
