Please prepare a short monologue and bring a headshot, if available. Be prepared to read from the script
From the website:
This piece addresses postpartum depression.....and broader cultural views of motherhood...The piece incorporates a diversity of voices with different class, ethnic, and religious points of view. The play includes personal essays, excerpts from novels, and interview material....The piece addresses the isolation, loss of power, loss of sense of self, and shame these women experience – while including humor and messages of hope.....Material is presented from other cultures’ postpartum practices, which seem to offer more community, hope, and healing for women after childbirth.
You don't have to have had PPD or children to participate!  Looking particularly for women who dance or move very well!   The play will be presented at St. Joseph's Hospital May 17, and possibly at other locations in Arizona...calls have already started to come in!
There may be some financial reward for this production.
If you want more information or want to schedule an appointment, please contact Sara Falconer, at 760-2434 or email
Enter hospital complex area at the traffic light at the corner of Carondelet Drive and N. Wilmot Rd.  Make the first left (before going past the hospital).  At the STOP sign make a right, then a quick left (don't go into the ER parking lot).  At this point you will also see signs that say "Postpartum Support Group" which you can also follow.  Then, at the next STOP make a right and go until you see a small parking area on the right for the "Perinatal Assessment Building".  Park there and walk up the ramp and enter the pink building. We will meet right there in the lobby
