The August Wilson Monologue Competition (AWMC) features students performing monologues from the legendary playwright's American Century Cycle of plays that document 100 years of the African American experience.

This competition is open to current high school-aged students from all backgrounds and ethnicities. We’ll help you select a monologue from one of the plays from the American Century Cycle and you’ll have access to free coaching sessions with theater professionals.

AWMC classroom residencies for Fall 2021 are now available to book. Contact us to reserve!
