Steppenwolf Theatre Company continues its 2008 Traffic Series with The PocketBook Monologues, which will run Jan. 14 in Steppenwolf's Downstairs Theatre, 1650 N. Halsted.
The PocketBook Monologues is a collection of stories from women of color that reveals their heartfelt emotions about intimacy, performed in the style of Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues, but from the Black female perspective. 'We talk about everything and have a lot of fun, but the underlying message is about the health of women and girls with an emphasis on HIV and AIDS awareness,' says WVON Radio personality Sharon K. McGhee, author and star of The PocketBook Monologues. The one-night engagement also features La Donna Tittle, Deborah Crable and Ramsey Cary, plus some surprise 'celebrity' guests.
Tickets are $35. See www.steppenwolf.org .
