Opening Show in the Books

Tonight we had our opening performance for the Vagina Monologues. Well done. This year we added 'crooked braid' and 'the congo' monologues, very powerful. The cast included 18 women and we took almost every monologue and had two or more people perform sections.

The performance went a lot better than I thought it would go, as we had never had a full run-through with all the women reading their parts, as several of the women were also in another play or performance until tonight. In the 'moaning monologue', Kay was to do the Southern Moan, and got the biggest laugh. I read the last monologue which was "I was there in the Room" and almost made several people cry.

At the end of the evening, we had put together a great show for the rape awareness campaign.

Sarah, That would be "Crooked Braid."

LOL! I'm glad you clarified that. I was wondering what a drunken braid was. ;-)
