This past weekend some girlfriends and I got together to attend a play at our favorite local theatre – The Ensemble Theatre (http://www.ensemblehouston.com). The current production showing is “What I Learned in Paris” written by Pearl Cleage (www.pearlcleage.net) one of my favorite playwrights and authors.
This story really resonated with me because it enveloped a main theme that is of interest to me – a woman’s journey to enlightenment and self-empowerment. Every woman should have a moment in her life journey when she realizes exactly what she wants and that she has the power within herself to make it happen. This play was about one woman who had surpassed that moment, another woman who was about to start on her journey to that moment, and the man they shared.
It was hilarious and poignant. Detria Ward (https://www.facebook.com/detria.ward) was fabulous as Eve Madison. I am sure that every woman in the audience could relate to this story. The girlfriends and I thoroughly enjoyed it and discussed it again as we munched on our delicioso South American food at Churrascos Restaurant (https://www.cordua.com/churrascos/). It was well worth the drive through a very rainy day in Houston to attend this outing.
