SANGER: One Woman, One Story.

El Portal Monroe Forum Theatre

5269 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood, CA 91601

8:00pm

Pamela Daly portrays one of the most influential women
in American history - Margaret Sanger; the Founder of
Planned Parenthood. Celebrated and vilified, her legacy
has drawn admiration and disdain from opposing sides
on controversial issues. This one-woman play is entirely
in Sanger’s own words.

“Sanger” hits the topics of Abortion, Birth Control, Sex,
and The Liberation of Women head on. This Woman Rebel
shakes the foundations of America through two World Wars, giving the world a network of clinics beginning in 1916 and the Pill in 1957. The Left and the Right have defined her to fit agendas – now you will hear from her.

SANGER: One Woman, One Story.

LIVE at the historic El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood.

Preview: August 21st
Runs: August 22nd - August 31st

Thursday - Saturday @ 8pm.
