I have a part in the production of the Vagina Monologues! I'll be reading the last monologue of the play, "I was there in the room." It depicts the awe of a woman watching the miracle of birth and sums up the message of the whole play. I'm very honoured to be reading that one! (Anybody want to have me as a guest in their delivery room?!) From a review of a production in 2000: "This final monologue also captured the message of the entire performance with its illuminating point about the roles vaginas play in all of our lives, regardless of gender. They are the very place we come from, so isn’t it time we all learn to get comfortable saying the word?" Read the whole review here.
I'll get my script this Sunday, and rehearsals start the following weekend. There will be a few performances at the beginning of March. (I'll keep you posted on dates.)
Who'd have thunk? I'm an actress! ;)
...I have a feeling I'll want my oboe on stage with me to hide behind!
