Performance: The Vagina Monologues

In this episodic play written by Eve Ensler in 1996, a cast of women share the various aspects of female experience through a series of monologues. These themes include sex, love, rape, masturbation, orgasm, female genital mutilation, birth and, of course, the vagina. The play aims to challenge and expose violence against women through the presentation of female empowerment and individuality. It is a powerful work that inspired a social movement known as “V-Day,” which raises awareness and money to support female victims of sexual abuse and violence. New monologues have been added to the original to reflect contemporary issues facing women and girls.
