Inspired by true stories from the playwright's life, Mama Juggs is an intimate performance about women's health and living with breast cancer.

Mama Juggs channels the voices of proud African-American women within her family as they struggle with bra stuffing, breastfeeding and last stage breast cancer - all in the context of the social and economic adversity of the Oakland projects. Woodley wrestles with these issues through a diversity of theatrical styles, including a cappella negro spirituals, comedy, straight talk, improvisation, and audience interactions.

Actress/playwright Anita Shontel Woodley, based in Chapel Hill, is an award-winning journalist for WUNC-FM's The Story with Dick Gordon. She plays three different characters in Mama Juggs (Grandma Suga Babe, Mable-Ree, and Anita) without the help of costume changes or scene breaks. This performance is sponsored by the Triangle Association of Black Journalists.

Mama Juggs has been warmly received by audiences across the U.S. Written as a promise to her mother - who died of breast cancer before 50 - it seeks to challenge cultural taboos and stereotypes
surrounding breast health and body image. By raising both money and social consciousness, it's designed to contribute to the winnable campaign against breast cancer.

The show premiered in North Carolina in June of 2009. In August 2010, Mama Juggs was the only American play invited to perform at the University of Yaounde in Cameroon, Africa. In the time between, Mama Juggs has been touring with great success to theaters, community organizations, women's groups and festivals throughout the U.S.
