About MMRP from V-Day's website:
"A groundbreaking collection of monologues by world-renowned authors and playwrights, edited by Eve Ensler and Mollie Doyle. These diverse voices rise up in a collective roar to break open, expose, and examine the insidiousness of violence at all levels: brutality, neglect, a punch, even a put-down. The volume features such authors and topics as: Edward Albee on S&M Maya Angelou on women's work; Michael Cunningham on self-mutilation; Dave Eggers on a Sudanese abduction; Edwidge Danticat on a border crossing; Carol Gilligan on a daughter witnessing her mother being hit; Susan Miller on raising a son as a single mother; Sharon Olds on a bra; Patricia Bosworth on her own physically abusive relationship; Jane Fonda on reclaiming our Mojo; and many more."
Is this performance appropriate for children?
There are no age requirements, but we do want parents to be aware of the content of the show. The monologues discuss sexual assaults and violence against women, as well as use adult language that parents may not find appropriate for their children. Parents should be aware of this content when making the decision of whether or not to bring their child to this performance. If you have any questions or concerns about the content of the performance, please contact us and we'd be happy to discuss this with you.
