Rehearsing the va-jay-jay play

It seemed like a good idea at the time. You know, another way to get out of my comfort zone. Achieve a little personal growth. That's why I said 'yes' when asked to be in this year's local production of Eve Ensler's ever-evolving play. The first cast meeting was this afternoon. I was assigned the "Hair" monologue, among other roles. Some involve moaning. Lots and lots of moaning. I think I just saw my comfort zone fly out the window.

Haven't seen the va-jay-jay play, so what's it all about Alfie? The "hair" role, sounds anxiety producing for this catholic school girl. lol

Here's some info on it:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Vagina_Monologues
It's an awareness-raiser for violence against women around the world and, annually, raises funds for selected local causes and a nationwide "cause." This year, it's women and girls in Haiti. "Hair" is probably what you imagine it to be. I'm going to need a slug of Chianti before going out there!
