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.
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, sweets, wine and beer, but hurry, seats fill fast and when they are gone, they’re gone !
In the past, performers have shared a gut wrenching story of surviving child abuse, a hilarious account of trying to use “green” menstrual pads and what it’s like being a boss in an office full of men. I first performed in the Memphis Monologues a few years ago. It was the first time I shared publicly that I had an abortion when I was 15-years-old.
My doctor was George Tiller.
He was shot to death inside his church in 2009.
This year my monologue will focus on Dr. Tiller and the other abortion providers who have been murdered by men who claim to value life.
This year’s performer will also include:
Chloe Evans O’Hearn
Gale Jones Carson
This event is by donation at the door, but space is limited. Please RSVP to secure your ticket today. Everyone is invited to the Memphis Monologues to hear my and other personal stories, have a drink, enjoy some food and give to an organization that supports women.
