"Birth" Will Be on Stage September 25, Martin Hall, Fort Worth, TX

No, not a real live birth!  How could we possibly time a birth to be at an exact moment?  We won't even go there today...

For the first time ever, "Birth" will be performed in North Texas.  Mark your calendar for Saturday, September 25, 2010.  The matinee is at 2:00 and the evening performance is at 7:00.  Each performance will be followed by a Talkback, hosted by DFW's own Joe Gumm.  (Not only is Joe a sportscaster and funny guy, he wrote a book about birth called "From Humor to Hormones" -- geared for dads-to-be, of course!  They birthed all four of their daughters at home, so he actually knows what he's talking about!) 

The play will be performed at Martin Hall on the Texas Wesleyan campus.  It will run 2 hours with a 15-minute intermission.  Eight women, eight birth stories.  You'll laugh.  You'll cry.  Make it a girl's night out.  Come for the play and stay for the Birth Fair.   

The Birth Fair will be held across the street in the Baker Building with vendors and a huge silent auction.  Lots to be had (I've got my eye on several things!) and it's not just birth and baby stuff.  I love me a good silent auction!  The Birth Fair will run from 12:00-6:30.  The first 500 visitors will receive an awesome goody bag.  You snooze, you loose, so don't be visitor number 501.

All proceeds will benefit the Tarrant County Birth Network.  You can buy your tickets online at: www.boldfortworth.org.  They are $10 per ticket in advance and will sell for $15 at the door. 

This will be the most memorable "Birth" you'll ever attend!  See you there!
