Virago Ensemble is proud to announce the premiere workshop production of the short play KISS THAT FROG by Serena Cates as part of the ensemble's event THROUGH OUR EYES: A COLLECTION OF ALL THAT WE ARE.The play will be followed by performances by special guests showcasing their work in music, spoken word and visual art. As our goal is to empower women's voices, we will also open up the space for more female-identifying artists present at this event as audience members, who would like to express and share their work.

Special guests:
Bonita Jackson, Actress & Writer
Callie Danae Hirsch, Visual Artist
Noa Fort, Musician and Music Therapist

Kiss that Frog was inspired by the social media trend of young adults writing lists about everyone they have kissed. This "Kissed List" hunch has opened the door to themes such as love vs. lust, sexual assault, drugs and alcohol, sexuality, secrecy and much more. The resulting script investigates the relationship millennial girls have with kissing, relationships, sex, and sexuality in general. It was inspired by true stories of women known by the playwright. Kiss that Frog was adapted in 2017 in collaboration with Kayleigh Cyr as a dance performance at Salem State University.
