Featuring 10-minute one acts: TTYL, Cradle Robber, my body. my voice, and full-length: #NotOneMore and Breast Advice
ONE ACT – TTYL is about a conversation that explores the fragile relationship between mother and daughter. Sometimes, words not said are just as important as those that are.
ONE ACT – Cradle Robber is about a gay couple’s adoption of a newborn thwarted by homophobia.
ONE ACT – my body. my voice. is a story of three women in crisis, in different stages of their lives during the overturn of Roe V Wade.
FULL-LENGTH – #NotOneMore is a dramatic production in two parts: BEFORE and AFTER, weaved together with a common thread. It takes an unflinching look at bullying, sexual violence, mental health, a school shooting, and the trauma the survivors left behind face.
FULL-LENGTH – Called the Vagina Monologues for boobs in its workshop, the setting of Breast Advice is two busy, crowded backstage dressing rooms, with casts preparing for a show. It features all social-media-curated original monologues to make you laugh and cry, which hopefully will do for boobs what Eve Ensler did for vaginas.
