Maggie Keenan-Bolger and Rachel Sullivan will present The Birds and the Bees...Unabridged, an original devised theater piece about female sexuality accompanied by a pre/post show art exhibit. Bringing together a diverse ensemble of 25 people, and over 10 visual artists, The Birds and the Bees...Unabridged received over 2,000 survey responses and raised $9,962 through a Kickstarter campaign to make this show possible.

For years, many women have not had the time or place to discuss and define their own notions of sexuality or to challenge current definitions. Using the experiences, ideas and opinions of the individuals in the ensemble, and the 2000+ people who participated in a nationwide survey, The Birds and the Bees...Unabridged tackles issues of sex education, partner communication, the sexual body, sexual health, identity, and how sexuality changes over one's lifespan. This project examines real opinions and stories...because the gentle explanation of the bees pollinating flowers will only go so far.
