The Desert Monologues:

Starting 11th and 12th Oct ending 27th Nov 2014 - OPEN FOR REGISTRATIONS!


This course will take participants through a variety of drama-based activities and culminates in

monologue performances at The Courtyard Playhouse, our dedicated grassroots theatre space.

It is a diverse course that is designed to be challenging and fun.

It doesn’t matter if you are a seasoned professional or an absolute beginner, 

if you want to act in a professional theatre and work with like-minded, talented individuals then this is the course for you!


Running for 7 years in Dubai, and now with a purpose-designed space, The Desert Monologues is a doorway into a whole new,

creative side of Dubai you don’t want to miss out on! Come and  join our theatre community.



Workshops will explore script-work, improvisation and characterisation. 

Experienced instructors will teach you how to get the best out of your voice and improve your stagecraft.



The course culminates with professionally recorded monologue performances in

The Courtyard Playhouse, to include: theatrical lighting, sound, make-up and costume. 

This is the climax of the programme and gives you the chance to exhibit your talent and show off your hard work.
