We selected our favorite monologues from submissions from across the country (and one from New Zealand!) that have a little mystery, a dash of intrigue, and a few big secrets for this year’s theme, Classified.

Ride with us on the bus to Omaha as an aspiring comedian travels to meet his birth mother; meet General Custer…the horse; sneak through the doggie door in a pretty neighbor’s house; love a school’s Valentine bunny, Fluffy-fluff.

WTW return performers include Jessica Wilson, Janet Schlapkohl, Ron Clark, and Chris Okiishi.  And you’ll get to see some new faces to the festival, too!

WTW is sponsored by Ruth Baldwin & Dick Javes
