The Earth-gina Monologues

It's Earth Day, and what better way to celebrate our misunderstood planet than to hear its experiences first hand in the style of The Vagina Monologues?! However, instead of personal stories dealing with the feminine experience, The Earth-gina Monologues has some of UCB's finest talent performing monologues as Earth, each focusing on a specific aspect of the "terrestrial experience." Man has oppressed land and sea for too long – it's time to empower our planet!
