Riverside Theatre this weekend will present its annual monologue festival, which features original works created by playwrights from around the country.

This year's series is called Walking the Wire: This Will Never Work, and it is directed by Jody Hovland. The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday and continue Saturday at Riverside Theatre, 213 N. Gilbert St. There will also be a matinée performance at 2 p.m. on March 4.

Admission ranges from $15 to $28.

The show will bring together work from diverse playwrights that will focus on the concept of unrealistic scenarios.

Ideas such as creating a homemade medical device, falling in love with a Barbie doll, channeling orders from God, and chasing your dreams to a faraway city are some of the stories included in this performance.

Walking the Wire: This Will Never Work will leave audience members with questions about their own future.
