BIRTH, a play by Karen Brody at Evergreen College Recital Hall-Ticket Available at Door
Hailed "the Vagina Monologues for birth" by author Christiane Northrup, BIRTH is a powerful play based on over one hundred interviews Karen Brody conducted with mothers across America.
The story of eight women, Birth delivers a theatrical experience that melds the unbridled hilarity, the unexpected poignancy, and the tragic truth about power in maternity care. Moving between first-person monologues, some dialogue, and the voices these women heard on the day they gave birth, the play confronts "The naked truth about childbirth in America."
Over 100 performances of Birth are happening in cities across America during September, the month of Labor Day, as part of a national action called BOLD. Puget Sound performances will take place in Seattle, Vashon, Tacoma and Olympia.
Performances are followed by a talkback with guest panelists from the birth profession.
