Someone's Gotta Do It Monologue Festival

Chances are, you’ve had one – more than one. They can be inspiring, terrifying, tedious, nauseating, and profound. Jobs. Jobs put food on our tables, roofs over our heads, and (sometimes) anxiety in our hearts. FTC’s fourth monologue festival, Someone’s Gotta Do It, features a dozen original pieces written just for us by playwrights from across our community and around the nation, with characters sharing their work stories: the exhilarating, the necessary, and the outlandishly absurd.

Performance Times:
