The Vagina Monologues

Kenan Auditorium

Wed Apr 24th, 2013 - Thu Apr 25th, 2013

 Wednesday 07:30 p.m. - 09:30 p.m.
 Thursday 07:30 p.m. - 09:30 p.m.

 

The William Peace University community is invited to a student-led, student-directed performance of the “Vagina Monologues" running Apr. 24-25, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. in Kenan Hall.

The "Vagina Monologues" is an episodic play written by Eve Ensler, which ran at the Off Broadway Westside Theatre after a limited run at HERE Arts Center in 1996.

Ensler originally starred in the production which was produced by David Stone, Nina Essman, Dan Markley, The Araca Group, Willa Shalit and the West Side Theater. When she left the play it was recast with three celebrity monologists.

The play has been staged internationally, and a television version featuring Ensler was produced by cable TV channel HBO. In 1998, Ensler and others, including Willa Shalit, a producer of the Westside Theatre production, launched V-Day, a global non-profit movement that has raised over $75 million for women's anti-violence groups through benefits of "The Vagina Monologues."

William Peace University students, faculty and staff will star in the student-led production of “The Vagina Monologues” in a series of stories complied by Ensler addressing issues such as hair, rape, homosexuality, sex slavery, female genital mutilation and orgasms.

Tickets: $5 at the door.
