EMOTIONAL CREATURE

2014-03 MILT-Emo-Crea-GabriolaHey Theatre fans! How about Eve Ensler fans?

Mayne Island Little Theatre is coming to Gabriola to present Ensler’s latest work, EMOTIONAL CREATURE. This is a powerful and moving work — here’s a write-up on the book that the stage play is based on:
“In this New York Times bestselling work, Ensler offers fictional monologues and stories inspired by girls around the globe. Fierce, tender and smart, [this play] is a celebration of the authentic voice inside every girl and an inspiring call to action to girls everywhere to speak up, follow their dreams, and become the women they were meant to be.”
Bring your daughters, bring your sons, bring your BFFs and yourself to this important play — a joint presentation of the Gabriola Arts Council and Gabriola Players, and sponsored by Carol Martin.
Friday, April 4 at 7:30 pm at the Phoenix Theatre at The Haven. Tickets at Artworks.
