"Memphis Monologues" Performances to Benefit Planned Parenthood | Arts & Culture
On Thursday, February 2nd, some prominent Memphis women will tell stories about life, love and sexuality.
It's called The Memphis Monologues, and it takes place at 6:30 p.m. at Theatre South, in the basement of First Congregational Church at 1000 S. Cooper Street.
The Memphis Monologues is inspired by Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues, a show featuring women's insights about their own sexuality. The Memphis Monologues brings together a diverse group of prominent Memphis women to tell their own funny, sad and very moving personal stories about love, sexuality and child-bearing.
Last year's Memphis Monologues was a standing-room only event that featured a heart-rending tale by storyteller Elaine Blanchard; a powerful reminiscence by Action News 5 reporter Kym Clark; and hilarious commentaries by Memphis Flyer reporter Bianca Phillips and comedienne Katrina Coleman.
This year's speakers include WMC-TV reporter Kontji Anthony and photojournalist Cynthia Perkins; Memphis Daily News reporter Aisling Maki; blogger and Commercial Appeal columnist Stacey Greenberg; mom blogger Shawn Karol Sandy; comedienne Jane Haze; WKNO host/producer Mamie Shannon; and singer-songwriter Marcella Pinella.
Admission is free with donation to Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region.
