Student Actors and Writers Wanted For “I Am An Emotional Creature” Performance
I Am An Emotional Creature is a collection of monologues by Eve Ensler, author of the critically acclaimed play The Vagina Monologues. Each monologue is in the voice of a different teenage girl. Some characters are an American girl struggling with peer pressure at her high school, an anorexic blogging as she eats less and less, a Masai girl from Kenya unwilling to endure female mutilation, and a pregnant girl wondering whether or not to keep her baby.
We at Femtastic! believe that the diversity of the teenage experience is something that is often overlooked. These monologues provide a great opportunity to showcase that diversity and the passion, empathy, and intelligence of teenage girls. We are looking for students interested in performing the monologues or writing their own monologues to be performed. The monologue should be about a page in length, and discuss an experience that has greatly affected you as a teenage girl. If you are interested in or have questions about acting, writing or both, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
