What is The ’Logues?

The ’Logues is REP’s people’s choice playwriting competition. Playwrights submit original scripts for 10-minute monologues or duologues, which are then staged anonymously. Audience votes determine the winner. And yes, there are prizes!

How does it work?

There are multiple ways to get involved in The 'Logues. We need playwrights, readers, actors, lighting and sound techs, stage crew, ... and audience, of course! Read on to find out more about how you can become involved. If you have any questions, send us an email: studio@canberrarep.org.au
