In the style of a poetry slam, this event is a competition between actors to be crowned Edinburgh Monologue Showdown champion!

Starting in April 2018, the Edinburgh Monologue Showdown has proved to be an enormously popular addition to the local Edinburgh performance calendar.

Our next event will be on Sunday 30th September 2018 will be hosted at:

The Canon’s Gait
232 Canongate,
EH8 8DQ Edinburgh

The rules are simple! Each participant will perform one monologue from a play or film in front of our judging panel, made up of theatre professionals from across Edinburgh. A final few will be selected to take part in a final round where each will be given a short time to prepare an unseen mystery monologue for performance.

The winner will be awarded with a trophy and the title of Edinburgh Monologue Showdown Champion, September 2018.

Audience tickets are £3 concession and £4 full on the door. Tickets are also available in advance via EventBrite.

All money raised will go toward supporting future Aulos Productions shows, including a potential tour for our critically-acclaimed, sell-out Edinburgh Fringe show Antigone na h’Éireann!
