Welcome to a brand-new exciting opportunity for young people to explore their creativity.

Lunchbox Theatre presents an online monologue competition for under 18s. Family, friends and fans vote for their favorite video on Lunchbox Theatre’s website.

Wikipedia describes a monologue as “a speech presented by a single character, most often to express their mental thoughts aloud, though sometimes also to directly address another character or the audience”
