Period Plays

by the Beehive Collective

presented by RED CARAVAN

to benefit Days for Girls

 

 

Plays. Period.
Sometimes you've got to go with the flow.

 

Directed by: Ria DiLullo, Rose Ginsberg, and Rachael Harrington

Featuring: Estelle Bajou, Amanda Castaños, Margaret Daley, Lauren Hennessy, Starr Kirkland, Sarah Matteucci, Kristin Parker, Vanessa Pereda-Felix, and Jessica Vera

 

WHAT IS IT, EXACTLY: As a writers group that champions the voices and stories of women, The Beehive Collective saw a need for an open dialogue about women’s health and hygiene. So the Period Plays were born! Join us for readings of new, short plays that unabashedly face what it means to be women. Brunch beverages and baked goods will be available!

 

MIMOSAS AND MAKING CHANGE: Hang out with us after the show and make a difference in the lives of girls around the world. Grab another mimosa and join members of the NYC chapter of Days for Girls to learn more about the organization and make DFG Kits.

WHAT ARE DFG KITS? These washable feminine hygiene kits last up to 3 years and are distributed to girls in need. Without a solution to their monthly cycle, 1 in 10 girls in Sub-Saharan Africa, 113 million adolescent girls in India, and 30% of girls from rural areas of Brazil will miss school this year. Help give these girls every opportunity for success. Join us in advocacy!
