INTERNATIONAL ISOLATION MONOLOGUES 2020
Stay tuned for a brand new, exciting, ongoing writing experiment!
Under HIT, six international playwrights are now being brought together online to collaborate from their homes in the UK, Denmark, France, Portugal, Sweden and Greece – to creatively share their isolation experiences online during Covid year 2020.
The result will be six brand new filmed monologues in English, which audiences will be able to watch being read aloud, featured on a HIT platform online this Autumn.
Your own story, in the words of another, in the mouth of the protagonist.
Watch as each partner playwright becomes performer, reading aloud the monologue especially written for them, based on their own story, written by their online, writing partner.

Writers from 6 countries – strangers to each other, listening to each other’s stories, writing eachother’s stories – separated by distance, united in isolation.
The HITting Home – International Isolation Monologues project is graciously being supported by Louis-Hansen Fund.
After a fantastic extended run this November of the compelling 1-man plays Harry Clarke and The Shy Manifesto, both pieces have gained critical acclaim and 5 stars for HIT’s actors and directors.
Both these powerful and revealing monologues are a tour de force for any actor. For HIT they are being performed in rep, also as part of HIT’s season focusing this year on LGBTQ+ oriented plays, leading up to HIT’s participation with dramatic works on stage during Worldpride 2021, which in August 2021 will be held in Copenhagen.
Stay tuned for more!
Performances will be held with the utmost concern for health and safety, following all current Danish state guidelines. The use of face masks by the audience is encouraged. Hand sanitizers will be provided. Audience is limited in size to 30 seats.
