The 5th annual Memphis Monologues benefiting Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region will take place Saturday, February 7, 2015 at Amurica.
The Memphis Monologues is a uniquely Memphis evening benefiting Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region. We've taken the concept behind Eve Ensler's remarkable play, The Vagina Monologues, and reimagined it for Memphis: Memphis women will tell real, personal stories. Some will be funny, some uplifting, some sad, some eye-opening. Join us for a drink, a nosh and an evening that will celebrate the female experience, the human experience, and the wonderful women who call Memphis home.
These monologues will be about myriad topics that speak to the female experience. We've heard stories in the past about rape, abortion, molestation, the hilarious side of pregnancy, environmentally friendly tampons, vagina-restricting blue jeans, women fighting their way into a male-dominated industry, childbirth, menstruation, breastfeeding, the loss of a loved one, A to Z and back again. Our only requirement is that each monologue be a true story (or stories), and that it be about the woman presenting it.
Past performers include Sen. Beverly Marrero, Mamie Shannon, Kym Clark, Ursula Madden, Bianca Phillips, Elaine Blanchard, Savannah Bearden, Kerry Crawford, Kacky Walton, Christiana Leibovich, Elizabeth Lemmonds, Tonya Dyson and more.
The cocktail evening will feature a silent auction, hors d'oeuvres and wine, cocktails and beer. The event is not ticketed, but we encourage donations to PPGMR throughout the evening. In 2014 this event raised more than $4,500.
