What is sexuality? How would you describe your sexuality? How do you think the media portrays female sexuality? Is it bad that I can’t easily answer any of these questions? Maggie Keenan-Bolger and Rachel Sullivan hope to unpack  with their new play, The Birds and the Bees… Unabridged. It will open March 27th at Speyer Hall at University Settlement (184 Eldridge St).
