Conversations ‘Bout the Girls, a fresh, inspiring play of monologues, is about the relationship women have with their breasts and the transformation women make from little girls into young ladies and then into women. Conversations ‘Bout the Girls is an engaging blend of women’s stories about this transformation, woven together to reveal the feminine mystique. From hilarious to heartbreaking, the stories are touching, embarrassing and moving experiences and give the audience a greater understanding of what it is to be a woman.  Women leave feeling empowered.  The monologues are being published as a book in conjunction with the launching of our national theatrical in 2013.

The funds are for the initial production costs of the book and to create promotional materials for the tour.

More than a theatrical tour: Conversations ‘Bout the Girls it’s also about a woman’s wellness; body, mind and spirit, and it begins in the lobby of the theatres with a Rejuvenation Lounge for neck and shoulder massages, foot baths, delectable treats and more.
The Money:  The $1987 covers the basic book production, flyers and marketing video.
Additional costs:  Funds in excess of the book production will support the initial production, promotional and administrative costs including things like theatre rental, printing.

Every additional dollar raised beyond the initial request will help with touring expenses, as I put the show on road, taking the work to an ever-expanding audience.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges
A Kickstarter campaign is all or nothing! There’s a risk of falling short of my goal.
Once the funding is complete, the only real risk is that things might take a little longer than planned with regard to the production. The book will be on time! I will keep you informed every step.
