It’s the Third Annual Me Too Monologues!

and we’re back on WordPress with some information on the third annual Me Too Monologues to be held in February of 2011!!!

The Center for Race Relations is asking for YOUR help.

Have you ever had an experience with race or ethnicity and wanted to share it?

Have you ever thought about gender or sexuality and wanted someone to hear your opinions?

Me Too!

The Me Too Monologues are back!

The third edition of the monologues show dealing with issues of identity at Duke – race, ethnicity, gender and sexuality – will open next February. We are asking ALL MEMBERS OF THE DUKE COMMUNITY to help bring this show to LIFE by submitting monologues of personal experiences on race, ethnicity, gender and sexuality. They can be of all lengths, themes, styles. A paragraph, a poem, a song, an interview, a ten page essay – we want it all!

All stories will be kept strictly confidential, and writers will not have to perform their ownmonologues.

We are also looking for actors who are interested in performing. The show will be held in February and we will begin rehearsing in November. We encourage students of all backgrounds to audition.

Auditions: November 13th, 14th

Monologues Submissions Deadline: October 29th.

We encourage ALL members of the Duke community, not only students, to submitmonologues!

If anyone is crunched for time for a monologue but really really wants to submit one, shoot us an email and we’ll work something out.
Email to sign up for auditions or submit a monologue. Thanks so much for your help!

This is a GREAT cause, a venue to begin dialogues on some of the most important issues on Campus. Let’s make it happen.

Are you excited? ME TOO!

First batch of monologues posted

Hey everyone,

This is long time coming, but here’s the first batch from the show. The video quality isn’t excellent (it’s our first year, we’re learning!), but the essence is there.

Our show had a great turnout. We had estimated that maybe 80-90 students would come to see a monologues show about race relations. Days before the event, over 300 had RSVPed on the Facebook event. The location was moved two days before the event to White Lecture Hall, which seats around 300 people. The day of the event, people were overflowing onto the stairs, the floor, and tables. We had around 350 people attend.

The show went on without a hitch, free tshirts were distributed, and the show was a success. Students and administrators had a range of experiences, many saying that this was the first time they had ever discussed race relations with their friends.

Talking about race in such an honest setting started some heated discussions afterward. The Center for Race Relations hosted a series of dialogues after the show, reperforming select monologues and having a discussion afterward about issues raised.

The show was a great success. We will be doing it again next year, so keep an eye out for more news! If you’re interested in production, performing, or submitting a monologue, please email
