Proceeds will benefit two of V-Day's newest campaigns: V-Girls, a program providing girls worldwide with a platform for their activism; and ONE BILLION RISING, a campaign that will gather one billion women and men in a global action to end the violence against women culminating on 2-14-13.
From June 14 - July 15, Berkeley Repertory Theatre will present the world premiere of Eve's powerful new play Emotional Creature. Staged by Obie Award-winning director Jo Bonney and performed by a talented ensemble of young women, Emotional Creature is made up of original monologues--and irresistible songs--about and for girls. Placing their stories squarely center stage, it gives full expression to their secret voices and innermost thoughts, highlighting the diversity and commonality of the issues they face. Emotional Creature is a call, a reckoning, an education, an act of empowerment for girls, and an illumination for parents and for us all. And it's receiving its world premiere here at Berkeley Rep!
Join us for this exciting day of theatre, food, friends, and activism. You can buy your ticket directly online at www.vday.org/ecbenefit2012
Emotional Creature will run from June 14 - July 15 at Berkeley Rep. Tickets start at $14.50 for attendees under 30, and $29.00 for those over 30. Tickets are available for all dates through the Berkeley Rep box office here >
