Women of all ages will find stories they can identify with and men might get a few handy tips on dealing with them as Divergent Theater presents "Gab Fest: An Evening of Women's Monologues," Sept 5 and 6 at the Logon Café.
Show times are 8 p.m., and tickets are $10 online at www.divergenttheater.com or $15 at the door.
Divergent Theater, a new theater company, formerly Outside the Box, launches its 2014-15 season with an evening of stories that are at times thought-provoking and at others just plain hilarious. From struggles with makeup to the travails of aging, "Gab Fest" literally has something for everyone.
"This script draws on some of the great female writers of out time," Ramona Young, the director, said. "The monologues really do encompass everything about the female condition.
"However, although this show is about women, it is definitely not just 'for' women. I think any man who attends will see plenty of parallels with the actions of their wives and girlfriends. And who knows, they might just learn something. I am sure all women would appreciate that."
The cast features leading local actors, including Brooke Hall, Rachel Cain, Monica Cobb, Gladys Thomas, Victoria LeBlanc and Roxane Gray.
"Staged readings are always such fun," Young said. "They allow for a level of audience interaction that regular stage shows do not. We want people to come out, have a bite to eat and a couple of drinks, and just have a fun evening."
The Logon Café is located at 3805 Calder Ave. in Beaumont.
