Correction: In a previous version, Ruthie Allen was misidentified as the sole director. She shares the role with co-director KiKi Alexander from North Carolina Central University.
Every year, many of UNC’s most talented actors come together to perform a series of monologues. But their performances aren't taken out of some contemporary stage monologue book — they're written solely by UNC students.
In January, Me Too Monologues UNC will put on another one of their annual shows for the community, this time directed by Ruthie Allen and KiKi Alexander.
The annual workshop with UNC professor Jacqueline Lawton, who explains the monologue writing process, was Tuesday night. However, those interested in Me Too Monologues still have time to get involved. Monologue submissions for the January 2018 show are open until Oct. 16.
And for those wondering why they should get involved with production, Mckenzie Wilson said that watching monologues performed at the show is an “extremely enlightening and empowering experience.”
