Sneak Peak - The Period

Hey Readers!

This sneak peak scene is called "The Period" and it is pretty self explanatory. Enjoy!


THE PERIOD

CARLY
My body is changing. Well that's how my mom puts it.

 MOM
Your body is changing.

 CARLY
So calm. So matter-of-fact. I’m freaking out! I’m 13 years old and I think I’m dying. There’s blood everywhere!

 MOM
It’s called puberty.

 CARLY
Where is it coming from? How do I stop it?


Also, we got our Fringe venue and schedule and we look forward to shring it with you guys next week!

Have at "Sexed" (but always safe) weekend!

Vagina Voices - SlutWalk

Hey Readers,

Sorry for the weeklong sabbatical from the blog. Technical difficulties! But we are back and ready for more posts and more challenges!
Today’s Vagina Voice comes from the SlutWalk in Toronto. Yes we know the walk already happened (May 26, I believe), but we’ve been dealing with some serious material in our rehearsals lately and the SlutWalk and other anti-rape campaigns have provided some reassurance and inspiration.
SlutWalk Toronto began in 2011 to fight back against victim-blaming and slut-shaming around sexual violence. The idea was sparked when a Toronto Police officer referred to women and survivors of sexual assault as "sluts" and suggested women 'dressing like sluts' were asking for it! To learn more about SlutWalk Toronto go here.
Below are some commercials we thought were also fitting for this topic. Please respond with your thoughts and other campaigns, articles, and other resources you have come across!

Happy Monday!

Vagina Voices - Plenty of Syph

Hey Readers!

As you probably know from all of those "Syph it's back!" promotional posters, buttons, pamphlets, etc. syphilis is on the rise in North America. The website Plenty of Syph fronts as a dating website for local singles that are looking for matches also infected with the disease. It's a play on the real dating site Plenty of Fish (to state the obvious). You go onto the website, enter your information and preferences, take a syphilis profile quiz, and then start reviewing your matches (for free!) Once you have chosen your perfect syph match you can click onwards to learn more about the infection including symptoms, how you catch it, and how to treat it. We were stoked to find this site because it helps to educate the public about syphilis (especially people our age) using relatable tactics. It's funny, clever, and very factual and informative.

Here is a video of us reading a few of the profiles from the website - this is what we do in lieu of rehearsing sometimes!

Happy Monday!

P.S. We like LOVE baby tigers.

A Sneak Peak on Friday

Hey Readers!

It's Friday and every Friday we are going to be giving you a sneak peak of our show!

This piece is called "Vulva" and it's pretty self-explanatory... hope you like it!


CARLY
Um, Vagina are you okay down there? Don't worry I'm not going to launch into a big monologue… I just thought I'd get in touch with my coochie. Say “Hi”

VULVA
Heelloooo

CARLY
Whoa! Oh my god, are you my vagina?

VULVA
I'm your vulva.

CARLY
You mean vagina?

VULVA
No I mean vulva. I'm your vulva!
 
CARLY
I don't like that name. I've never heard it before.
