'Conversations 'Bout the Girls' Returns

By: Izola Greve

Don't miss theatre at its finest! "Conversations 'Bout the Girls" returns?Mother's Day 2013!? Sonia Jackson, author of "Conversations 'Bout the Girls", was inspired to put pen to paper after seeing the Vagina Monologues. She was well?aware that women have "two other" powerful and much talked about?objects, breasts!?

Thrilled and excited about the return of this production, I was curious about the timing. When I asked, "Why now?"? Sonia told me a story about her friend who had been?"putting herself out?there." ?Here is what she said about her friend: "She's working, starting a new business venture, writing, taking care?of family and so much more. She was concerned that she hadn't lost some?weight. This powerful woman was in denial?about her gifts, talents, abilities and skills. When I reminded her?of all that she had done, she laughed. ?I asked her why the laugh and she said my encouragement reminded her of how she?felt when she saw?'Conversations 'Bout the Girls'?years ago."

"Leaving the play I felt like I could do anything!" her friend said. ?Sonia realized, "I am surrounded?by powerful women who only sometimes recognize it or acknowledge it. ?Women leave 'Conversations' feeling empowered. ?This play reminds women that we are powerful beyond measure and capable of accomplishing anything we want to! Yes! Yes! Yes!"? Sonia exclaimed. "I?want more women to have that feeling!"
With this play, Sonia Jackson creates a gathering of women sharing?touching, embarrassing and moving stories. As the evening comes to an?end, you will have laughed, maybe cried but no matter what, you will be inspired. This timely, transformative work allows you to?see women in a new light. And don't think that this play is only for women; this is an?eye opening, healing journey for men as well!?

This is a magnificent evening of theatre filled with thought provoking?real-life experiences, and gifts us with the knowledge of how powerful?it is to share our story. The passion and the brilliant articulation?of "Conversations 'Bout the Girls" reaches beyond body parts and truly?shows off a woman's two best attributes - her heart and her brains!?
