The Coronalogues – Silver Linings, a series of nine original monologues created by nine local writers and performed by nine professional actors premiered on SRT’s Facebook LIVE on 26 May 2020. The stories offered a glimpse at the optimistic, the bittersweet, and the touching side of life in the shadow of the coronavirus. 

Many who watched The Coronalogues were inspired by the stories and wanted to share their own silver linings too. Were you inspired by the stories? How has your life been affected by Covid-19 and the circuit breaker? What is your silver lining?

We’d like to hear your stories that can help lift up the spirit of our community. Create a monologue that highlights the lighter side of your life during the Circuit Breaker, and stand a chance to win $500. The prize is made possible with the kind donation from a Friend of SRT who has requested to remain anonymous.
