Circle Theatre is searching for the best creatives that Bristol has to offer. We are looking for six writers, six actors, and six directors to perform with us at our ground-breaking event: The Inner Circle.

The Inner Circle will be an evening of all-new monologues, curated by Circle Theatre. You will perform with no props, no set, and no lighting changes. It’s the perfect setting to demonstrate your skills, and we’re so excited to see what you can bring to the evening.

These intimate ten minutes performances will provide a platform for the new voices, and radical ideas, that we need to kickstart performance-culture in the age of COVID-19.


  • Please submit a full draft of your monologue (maximum ten minutes), and a short covering letter about it (200 words max). This must be an original, standalone piece of new writing, not taken from a longer play.


  • Please submit your CV and a covering letter. Let us know what topics, themes, and styles most inspire you.


  • Please apply using Spotlight/ CV as per most other auditions. Please send an audition tape of yourself performing a piece of text that you feel represents you and your personality best (max 3 mins).

Writers will be paired with directors, and directors will be paired with actors by Circle Theatre.
