After an encore performance on August 13th and 15th, the Antiguan theatrical production, When A Woman Moans, is set to hit the road before the end of the year. A number of Caribbean countries are on the schedule for the show which picks up where Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues left off. The group, Women of Antigua, produced the Ensler play for two years as part of the V-Day activities, raising money for various charities. In 2010, they invited writers like Dotsie Isaac Gellizeau, Marcella Andre, Carel Hodge, Floree Williams, Greschen Edwards, and Melissa Elliott to submit monologues for a wholly Antiguan production largely penned by directors/actors Zahra Airall and Linisa George. When a Woman Moans is the outcome. The response has been overwhelming. Here are a handful of the responses posted on Facebook:
“The show was professionally executed and enjoyable beyond explanation. My Friend in Jamaica wants to know when you going to perform there.”
“It was touching, moving & titillating!!…You’ve whet my appetite and I wait, in anticipation for your next production!”
“First I laughed, then I embarassingly and conspicuously cried and cried…”
“Those girls are just beautiful, full of talent. It was Exceptional.”
