Actors Bridge Ensemble is pleased to present the Nashville Premiere of A MEMORY, A MONOLOGUE, A RANT AND A PRAYER (MMRP) as part of “V to the 10th” — V-Day’s 10th Anniversary Celebration. Commissioned by Eve Ensler, MMRP is a groundbreaking collection of monologues by world-renowned authors and playwrights, like Carol Gilligan, Maya Angelou, Alice Walker, Kathy Najimy and Moises Kaufman. These writings are inspiring, funny, angry, heartfelt, tragic and beautiful. Together they create a true and profound portrait of how violence against women affects all of us.
Actors Bridge was the first to bring V-Day’s THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES to Nashville in 2000. Now, we are honored to be the the first to bring MMRP to local audiences.
Directed by Vali Forrister, MMRP features Annie Sellick, Mike Eldred, Thandiwe Shiphrah, OlaOmi Akalatunde, Rebekah Durham, Rachel Agee, CJ Tucker, Kamal Angelo Bolden, David Chattam, Kanya Lai, Alicia Ridley, Jessika Malone and the Rev. Becca Stevens.
Friday night author Carol Gilligan will read her monologue from the collection.
Proceeds from this production will benefit Act Like a GRRRL.
