When it premiered on Broadway in 1997, Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues broke ground by giving hundreds of women the opportunity to speak candidly about their bodies and experiences. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the play, Earlie Bird Productions is pleased to announce the world-premiere of V2: Creation Myth.
A sequel of sorts to The Vagina Monologues, V2 continues the conversation of what it is to be a woman in the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election, as experienced by a group of professional women. Part memoir, part composite experience culled from interviews and listening sessions, the production cover topics such as sexuality, motherhood, race, assault, aging, work, and more, finally culminating in a new vision of female solidarity and power in America.
Performances will be held February 23 and 24 at Philly PACK (233 Federal Street). Proceeds from the production will benefit Planned Parenthood and the Women’s Community Revitalization Project, a Philadelphia-based organization committed to social and economic equity for women with low incomes and their families.
