One-woman show about controversial Planned Parenthood founder returns
June 24, 2012
Although actress/acting coach Pamela Daly conceived, co-developed and now stars in the one-woman show, “Sanger: One Woman, One Story,” about the life of Margaret Sanger, the controversial founder of Planned Parenthood, she said she is not any kind of political advocate.
“I was in my laundry room and folding clothes when I thought of (the show),” she said.
In the hidden catacombs beneath the twin towers of Proctor & Gamble’s world headquarters, the brittle remains of Mr. Pringle are slowly crumbling to dust in a convenient, re-sealable, vacuum-packed tube.
Nearby is the torch-lit courtroom where hapless 1960s housewives were put on trial for “ring around the collar.”
Stage Door: Too Many Bosses, One Crusader and a Theater Party
July 26, 2015
In 1916, Margaret Sanger founded the organization that eventually became Planned Parenthood. She was a fearless protester for women’s rights and an ardent crusader for birth control when it was a hush-hush topic. She was often arrested for speaking frankly about sexuality. Cincinnati native Pamela Daly this weekend is presenting a one-woman show that she personally commissioned; it’s onstage at the Aronoff Center’s Jarson-Kaplan Theater.
The woman who put a pinch in the Queen City’s corset in 1922 with her Birth Control conference – vilified nationally, prosecuted repeatedly, and denounced locally by the Knights of Columbus – is coming back to town again.
Margaret Sanger – founder of Planned Parenthood, politically incorrect crusader for birth control, and fearless protester who was often arrested for speaking frankly on sexuality – will be brought to life in SANGER: One Woman, One Story at the Aronoff Center’s intimate Jarson-Kaplan Theater on Saturday, June 27 at 7:00 PM, and Sunday, June 28 at 2:00 PM.
Pamela Daly portrays one of the most infuential women in American history, Margaret Sanger, the Founder of Planned Parenthood.
Celebrated and vilified, her legacy has drawn admiration and disdain from opposing sides on controversial issues. This one-woman play is entirely in Sanger’s own words, with Daly assuming the roles of over 60 unique characters throughout.
