Vital Signs

A collection of women’s monologues ranging from the outrageously comic to the darkly serious, Vital Signs explores and embraces the female experience.

Written by the pseudonymous author Jane Martin, this diverse collage of stories features themes of hope, frustration, love, idiosyncrasies, relationships, humor and pain. The production features the edgy and eclectic music from the album Angel Food for Thought by Meryn Cadell, interwoven into the performance.

Entertaining and thought-provoking, Vital Signs will be directed by Pam Cardell and performed in the Sponberg Theatre on November 18 & 19 at 7pm and November 20 at 2pm, one weekend only. (Second Stage series)

Please note that a number of potential emotional triggers may be touched on during the performance. Due to adult language and content the performance is recommended for mature audiences only.

Audiences for Vital Signs are invited to join us in the Sponberg Theatre 30 minutes prior to showtime for live pre-show entertainment. Cash donations will be accepted to benefit SafeHouse Center – Domestic Violence Project. In exchange for a donation, audience members will receive a raffle ticket. At the end of the night a winner will be drawn who will receive an artpiece that is created by EMU student Christine Franzen in realtime during the performance.
