Thanks to robust ticket sales and positive audience response for its initial March presentation, Theatre West will present a return engagement of My Uterus: A Womb with a View, a stimulatingly funny show.

Dina digs deep into her pelvic cavity to explore what the Uterus really is, what it means to own one, and to probe and examine how it continues to get screwed over again and again by those who have no business being in there.

Dina Morrone is the winner of the Valley Theatre Award for her solo show The Italian In Me, which is based on a chance meeting with the Maestro, Federico Fellini, in Rome, Italy, and the family comedy, Moose On The Loose, a comedy about an Italian family and a Canadian Moose, which won four Scenie Awards. When Dina is not writing self-deprecating comedic solo shows, plays, and short stories, she's the editor/contributing writer for the socially conscious lifestyle magazine, The Eden Magazine, where she has interviewed the likes of Louis Gossett Jr., Gina Lollobrigida, and Bruce Dern. Her voiceover work includes VO on films like Ferrari, Luca, Avatar, The Bad Guys, TV shows like The Morning Show, the video game Starfield, and as Announcer of several awards shows including the Media Access Awards on PBS. The graduate of Metropolitan University Toronto has also appeared on screen in numerous films and television shows in the U.S., Canada, and Italy. She is the producer of Theatre West's Solopalooza 2.022, Portraits of Humanity 2, Who I Am, and So Many Stars.
