OUT OF THE FIRE: THE BANNED BOOKS MONOLOGUE

February 26 - 28, 2015

In Promenade Hall at Overture Center our Monologue Festival is back by popular demand, with an all-new slate of original works performed by some of your favorite FTC actors. This year, we are thrilled to partner with the Dane County Library System to present a monologue festival celebrating our freedom to read.

As always, Forward will invite playwrights from our community and across the country to add their voices to this conversation about free speech – and all that freedom entails.

Needless to say, we’re looking forward to the results: monologues may take the point of view of an author of a banned book, a patron requesting a banned book, a character who’s been “banned,” or even a person challenging a book’s validity.

This is a festival that will ask us to open our minds – and maybe a book or two!
