Chronicling over 100 years of queer and trans performance

The Oberon Book of Queer Monologues features work from Mae West, Emma Donoghue, Split Britches, and more 📚




Combining stage plays with spoken word and performance art, this brand new anthology features over 40 extracts from some of the most exciting stage works in the English-speaking world.



An essential tool for artists seeking monologues for auditions or training, OBOQM is a comprehensive guide through the hidden histories of queer theatre, and a celebration of the LGBTQIA+ community.


Curated by the award-winning Scottee - an artist from London, who’s work often centres on themes of outsiderness, race, sexuality, class, age, and gender - the book also features work from a range of celebrated artists including Mae West, Emma Donoghue, and Split Britches.


Sounds good, right..? #QueerBookOfTheWeek 📚


The Oberon Book of Queer Monologues is published by Oberon Books, costs £12.99 and will be available from 28 June 2018
