Titty Talks in Wakefield, Quebec

Boobies, tatas, bosoms, hooters, jugs. Whatever you want to call them, they are front and centre of the first-ev

er “Titty Talks” performance Dec. 1.

A collective of women will perform monologues about their journeys into womanhood, aging, survival and, well, their ladies. The show is reminiscent of the Vagina Monologues, but instead of a set script, each story is personal and self-written.

“ ‘Titty’ is not in the dictionary, but ‘titillating’ is,” said Christine Leger, the play’s creator. Leger had conceived of the idea several years ago and, after watching a documentary by Wakefield-based Rooney Productions about the AIDS epidemic in Southern Africa, decided to organize the show this year and donate proceeds to CARE Canada and the Wakefield Grannies.

“AIDS is really affecting women,” Leger said. “A lot of it has to do with sexual violence.”

Facts and humor will be intertwined in the stories and Leger hopes viewers will realize that they can collectively spark change.
