“The Monologue Project” hits the Bishop Arts Theatre Center stage Monday, Nov. 20.

The show is a collection of monologues written and performed by black women, and it’s also being staged in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.

“We join in solidarity with the woman-driven activism of movements like Black Lives Matter, acknowledging the essential role of black women in America,” a media release from the theater states. “The event will be followed by a discussion and call-to-action.”

Writers contributing monologues include Amy Evans, Pia Wilson, Charlayne Woodard, Dominique Morisseau, Mfoniso Udofia, Cori Thomas and Chisa Hutchinson. And they’ll be performed by Dallas artists.

The show, which starts at 7 p.m., is free.
