Conversations 'Bout The Girls
"Conversations 'Bout The Girls is both moving and, at moments, hilarious. I really did laugh and cry."
♥ Lisa Poliak
“Enjoyed your piece this past week. For a subject that you would think would not appeal to men, it was written with humor, insight, compassion and diversity.”
♥ Isaiah McGee
“A most delightful and entertaining play with very moving moments performed exceptionally well. My heart and emotions were touched. The Playhouse is a definite "find"..tucked away in a period building...quaint intimate setting. I highly recommend this play. The subject matter is tender yet profound...and speaks to issues far deeper than their outward appearance.”

"By turns hilarious, moving, thought provoking, and challenging... ‘Conversations 'Bout the Girls’ is an entertaining blend of stories"
♥ Mary Mallory, The Tolucan Times
“Sonia Jackson has created a community of women with similar experiences and perhaps similar fears and shame. Every woman will recognize herself in some part of the performance, which ranges from stories of size (too much, too little) to function (breastfeeding and foreplay) to dysfunction (mammograms, breast cancer, loss). Ms. Jackson, in this thoughtfully written piece, raises our awareness of the unrealistic standards for women’s bodies that pop culture and mass media present as the “norm” – a lean, mean, trim and thin body with large firm round breasts. The actors on stage deal with the fact that every woman has issues with her truth, her body, her norm.”
