Talking With.jpg

Grove Players is proud to present Jane Martins revered work, Talking With!


Director Becky Lange will work to bring Martins series of monologues to life.


Each vignette sheds a spotlight on a different type of woman in today's society.  Talking With deals with the personal challenges of each character detailed in the monologues.


The pieces have a wide emotional range, from touching to intense balanced with humorous and comical. However, even the more lighthearted pieces offer moments of in depth reflection. Come join us on March 6th, 7th, 8th, 13th, 14th or 15th and find out what Scraps, Dragons, and French fries have in common, and what they have to offer!
