A Night in the Red Tent


We've created an entire evening celebrating menstruation. The crimson wave. Shark week. Riding the cotton pony. The curse. Aunt Flo. 

Call it what you want, but call yourself lucky if you're present for an entire evening of monologues, stories, songs, poems, scenes and improvisation dedicated to Mother Nature's idea of an (almost) never-ending prank. 

Twenty-eight women and men (give or take) will share their perspectives, thoughts, experiences and ideas on menstruation, and trust me, you don't want to miss it. 

You'll also get a sneak peek of Period Piece, the two-act musical comedy that premiers February 21st at The Playground. Written by Jenni Lamb and Lisa Linke, this show is a time-traveling exploration of menstruation. Yep. Composed and musically directed by Amanda Murphy, Directed by Andy Eninger, Choreographed by Erica Reid. 

So seriously. What else would you rather do on a Tuesday night than listen to a ton of talented people talk and sing about periods?
