About Men Don’t Listen to Women Naked:
Men Don’t Listen to Naked Women is a show starring Monique Holt and wraps up Deaf Awareness Week 2012! This provocative piece is a one-woman show. Monique will let you know what she thinks. “Oh,” you say, “a naked women thinks.” Well, yes, and talks as well. But, we have found that the hard part is that many people don’t listen, especially men. This show tries to get around that. Come and listen with your eyes.
At the Davis Center in the Silver Maple Ballroom, we invite you to listen to Men Don’t Listen to Naked Women, directed by Tim Chamberlain. Monique will tell stories from a unique point-of-view. While you may have heard the stories before, we can guarantee that you haven’t seen these interpretations of them. She is a woman of a certain age. She examines gender interactions and the world with a hands-on approach. Oh, was it mentioned that this show has audience participation? Is it her experience that interests you? Or, on the other hand, is it her heart? Oh, right! It’s her mind!
