Me Too Monologues at Marist College

Every person on our campus has a story. You may never know what the person sitting next to you in class has experienced. The person down the hall may be the most interesting person--but they haven't shared their experiences with anyone.

What's your story?

This year, the Marist College Club of Theatre Arts is truly putting the "experimental" in "experimental theatre," as they launch the Me Too Monologues. Me Too began at Duke University in 2009 as a way for the Duke community to create a collective identity, and to raise awareness to some of the issues that Duke students, faculty, and alumni struggle with. After hearing about the idea from friends at Duke, MCCTA decided to bring Me Too to Marist this year.

Any member of the Marist community can submit their story online anonymously. It can be the best thing that's ever happened to you, the worst thing, something hysterical, or something incredibly heartbreaking. Maybe it's the story of how you overcame adversity, the story of how your heart was broken and you can't get over it, how you felt lost and confused your freshman year, or about how you finally figured out what you want to do with your life. MCCTA will take the submissions, adapt them into monologue format, and perform them in March. All submissions will remain 100% anonymous.

Me Too needs your stories! What better way to procrastinate during finals week than to write about something you have always wanted to get off your chest. Stories can be submitted  here! More information can also be found on the Facebook event. All submissions are due by January 15th.

Have any questions? Want to get involved, or share more information with your club of organization? Email metoomarist@gmail.com. Together we can create this empowering event for our Marist community!
