NCTC is proud to partner with TigerBear Productions as part of a National Queer Micromonologue Collaboration
hold me the forgotten way
By Harrison David Rivers
Produced/Directed by M. Graham Smith
Episode 3 directed by NCTC's YouthAware Program Manager Nicole Meñez
Consisting of seven brief audio monologues, Rivers’ cycle explores intimate confessions made in public spaces about love and sex. TigerBear and NCTC partnered with five remarkable queer theaters across the country including San Francisco’s Theatre Rhinoceros, Chicago’s About Face Theatre, San Diego’s Diversionary Theatre, Atlanta’s Out Front Theatre, and NYC’s TOSOS/The Other Side of Silence, to use this virtual moment to connect queer communities and celebrate talented artists across boundaries despite existing in separate geographies.
These micromonologues can be heard free of charge at tigerbearproductions.com beginning Wednesday, June 16 and will be indexed on Spotify, Apple, and Google. A live listening party for the public with an interactive lobby will be held on Wednesday June 16 at 8pm ET/5pm PT with artists from the teams attending virtually. The monologues will be available online through December 31, 2021.
