The Day I Opened My Eyes is a touring production that examines reproductive health and rights issues through the eyes of young people from a range of cultures.
Commissioned by Planned Parenthood Global Partners and penned by playwright KT Curran, the play uses monologues, music, dance and larger-than-life photography to address issues like poverty, a lack of family planning in developing nations, the HIV/AIDS crisis and "honor" crimes, or the practice of burning, maiming and/or killing women who have been accused of bringing shame to their families.
SOURCE21, the adult touring company of The SOURCE Teen Theatre from Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, performs the work under the direction of Curran at several major universities across the state. The company stops at USF-Tampa on Monday night and the public is invited to come out and experience this special community performance.
The Day I Opened My Eyes, 7 p.m. Mon., Nov. 21. Phyllis P. Marshall Center, USF, 4202 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa. For more information, call 941-356-8336.
