Emotional Creature

  • Young People's Theatre 165 Front Street East Toronto, ON, M5A 3Z4 Canada (map)

With the generous support of Young People's Theatre and Children's Peace Theatre, V-Day/One Billion Rising Toronto -- part of the global movement to end violence against women and girls -- is pleased to present the return of EMOTIONAL CREATURE by Eve Ensler.  Hailed as "triumphant" after its 2014 premiere, the show is back with an all-new production.  Proceeds from Emotional Creature will benefit the Metro Action Committee on Violence Against Women and Children (METRAC - Action On Violence).

Based on the bestseller I Am An Emotional Creature: The Secret Life Of Girls Around The World, the play is a moving portrait inspired by interviews with teenaged girls from around the globe. Emotional Creature is an affirmation of the authentic voice inside every girl - no matter what her circumstances - and an invitation to girls everywhere to raise their voices, claim their bodies, follow their hearts, and strive to be who they were born to be.
