That Takes Ovaries!

Real-life stories from women and girls about the gutsy, outrageous, courageous things they have done. Short, multicultural, fun, sassy, touching true tales of estrogen-powered deeds that range from playful to political. After the play, women and girls from the audience share stories about times they acted boldly. Guys proudly brag about the ovaries in their lives -- mothers, sisters, daughters. Everyone who speaks gets a chocolate egg wrapped in gold foil: a Golden Ovary award. For more information, including excerpts from the script, visit the That Takes Ovaries! site.
