Soul Food Monologues with Forward Theater Company

When: 
Wednesday, December 13, 2017 - 6:30pm
Where: 
Monona Public Library

Forward Theater Company has been performing monologues in the libraries since 2010, and audiences continue to ask for more! Every other year, Forward puts out a call for original monologues based on a common theme. The best twelve are chosen and performed by professional actors in a weekend of shows at Overture Center. And those same actors (and monologues) are available to perform at your library.
