Annual August Wilson Monologue Competition

True Colors Theatre

Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company is proud to present the Annual August Wilson Monologue Competition for Georgia high school students, grades 9-12. This competition, coordinated by True Colors Theatre’s Director of Education, Nikki Toombs, focuses on the plays of August Wilson’s American Century Cycle, which chronicle the African American experience through the 20th century.  Each play is set in a different decade and is filled with soaring, lyrical monologues that take the song, laughter, pain, and rich content of African American life and places it in the mouths of the greatest and varied ensemble of characters written since Shakespeare.

Deadline is Jan. 18
