Back by popular demand after successful productions at Bearsville Theater, Rosendale Theatre and Bard College, TMI Project is re-staging What to Expect When You're Not Expecting: True Stories of Slips, Surprises and Happy Accidents for two nights at the Morton Library in Rhinecliff. A portion of proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood Mid-Hudson Valley, and to TMI Project's own Community Outreach Initiative, which brings the organization's empowering workshops to places like Living Well, a Dutchess-County-based program serving survivors of domestic violence and their families.
"In our workshops, stories kept coming up about unexpected pregnancies, and what people did about them, revealing secrets they've never told before. There was such a great range of stories, that we thought it was important to collect them all together, and share them with the world in 2013, the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade."
Inspired by "The Vagina Monologues," What To Expect When You're NOT Expecting incorporates as source material the voices of many women and men, a number of whom have participated in TMI Project writing workshops. Their experiences with unplanned pregnancies are varied, and run the gamut from continuation of pregnancy, to adoption, to termination. Adoptees are also heard from about their experiences. There's even a transgendered prospective sperm donor in the mix, who is left to decide if he should transition to womanhood or hold-out to donate; a dilemma he certainly wasn't planning on.
Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.
We hope that like "The Vagina Monologues," What To Expect When You're NOT Expecting will become a piece that's produced in many other places around the country and the world and will continue to raise money for Planned Parenthood and TMI Project's Community Outreach Initiative.
