Students and faculty submit stories of their experiences, and we turn them into a documentary theatre performance. We began in 2009 as a show focused primarily on race, ethnicity, and culture, but over the years have expanded to cover topics of sexuality, class, gender, religion, disability, and community. And even these topics do not adequately define who we are. This year we are looking for partnerships and sponsorships to help us continue providing students with outlets for reflection, increased understanding, and personal discovery. Hopefully, you will join us in spreading social awareness through documentary-theatre performance. Me Too is looking for potential donors; our anticipated budget is $2100, which will be outlined in the coming pages.  Page 4  of 6   II.   Introduction The purpose of the Me Too Monologues is to take audiences inside stories and experiences that they might not otherwise have access to. These stories often feature conflicting viewpoints that force the audience to reevaluate their perceptions. After each performance, we invite audience members to engage in “talk back” dialogues with the production team and members of the cast. Me Too Monologues invites audiences to listen, talk and actively engage with complex moral and ethical issues of identity. Me Too Monologues takes issues of identity out of the multitude of centers on campus  —  The Mary Lou Williams Center for Black Culture, The Center for Multicultural Affairs, The LGBT Center, The Freeman Center for Jewish Life, The Kenan Center for Ethics, etc.  —  and brings them to a new space and a new medium. While these centers serve a crucial purpose on campus, not all students take full advantage of them. Some students may not even know that the centers exist, while others may feel that they are not a part of the centers’ “target” demographic. There is no other venue on campus that allows students to explore such a wide range of critical issues related to identity, while allowing the audience to absorb the content at their own pace. At Duke, we often become passive observers of these issues in particular, and Me Too Monologues encourages honest and sincere dialogue that is otherwise hard to generate. While many may talk about identity with their closest friends, genuine and provocative conversation that brings together so many varied and sometimes conflicting viewpoints is rarely obtainable on a similar level. Me Too Monologues has already collected submissions and will hold auditions from October 22-24 th . Rehearsals will begin in early November and will continue at the start of next semester. Performances are scheduled for January 31 st , February 1 st  and 2 nd  of 2013, and will take place in Nelson Music Room on East Campus. We have a production team of five undergraduate students, one of whom helped direct last year’s show, and we anticipate a cast of around 15 students. We also have a faculty advisor, Jules Odendahl-James of the Theatre Studies department, and we function as a subsidiary of the Center for Race Relations. Me Too Monologues is targeted at the Duke community. Our audience is composed primarily of students ages 18 to 24, but we anticipate faculty, staff, and members of the administration will attend as well. We expect an attendance of roughly 1,000 over the course of the three sold-out performances. After performances, videos are posted on YouTube, where we have garnered over 7,250 hits on videos posted since February 2012.
