That Uppity Theatre Company
Directed by Rhonda Cropp, Joan Lipkin, Suki Peters, and Pam Reckamp
Performed in honor of the 50th anniversary of NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri, the state’s largest grassroots pro-choice organization, That Uppity Theatre Company is producing Eve Ensler’s iconic “The Vagina Monologues.”
The event featured one of the largest and most diverse casts of women seen on stage in St. Louis and included cisgender, transgender, non-binary, African American, Asian American, Latina, white, and immigrant women, spanning several decades. The play explores consensual and non-consensual sexual experiences, body image, genital mutilation, direct and indirect encounters with reproduction, sex work, love, rape, menstruation, birth, orgasm, and many other topics.
