First Church of Gynecology and Obstetrics

The First Church of Gynecology and Obstetrics met at my house tonight for the second time. There are eleven in this little congregation, although two were missing. With a name like that, you might expect it to be an all female church, but there are men in it, too.

      Okay, so it's a play.
      Three years ago I found myself sitting in an OB-GYN's crowded office, waiting endlessly. As I observed the other patients, it occurred to me that there was a lot of drama going on in one little room. Every person in there was at some major emotional event in his or her life: expecting a baby, just had a baby, hoping to have a baby, hoping to NOT have a baby, lost a baby, all done having babies...and the men who love them, each with his own little crisis too. It occurred to me these folks could each use a higher power in their life right about now, whether they acknowledge it or not.
      And so a little play was born and is now being brought to life by the Prairie Players, directed by Moi. We'll be taking it to the ACT Festival in Winkler the middle of May. We've got Vicki Hooke and Terry Tully coupled off, Melissa Draycott and Kevin Hamm coupled off, and then we have Danica Turcotte, Natasha Klassen, Liz Driedger, Barb Knott, and Ember Rodgers. Big cast for a 15-minute play, I know. They are going to do a fabulous job.
      For those who can't get to Winkler, we're hoping to have the dress rehearsal open to friends and family, free of charge, on Tuesday, May 10, at 8:00 p.m. at the Glesby Centre.
     There will be blood.
     But only if Melissa goes into labour.  


  1. Sweet concept! Wish I could see!

  2. I'll go mark May 10 8 pm on the calendar. I don't mind if there is no blood. Will there be food?

  3. Sorry, Karen, no food unless you want to BYOF.
