To participate, you MUST submit a 2-5 min piece IN ADVANCE. It does not need to be finalized/performance-ready. It does need to convey your voice/sensibility. It can be a monologue, an essay, a solo character sketch, but it must not be over 5 minutes and must be something you can perform/read on your own – no scene partner, no production values, no sound cues, just you and your text. Last thing: it must be true. Not factual, necessarily, but TRUE.
