This Wednesday at 7:00 and 9:30 PM a local group of women will perform Eve Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues” at the Scarpino Teatro, part of the global movement to stop violence against women and girls.
“The Vagina Monologues” is a series of monologues (ugh, duh) that Ensler wrote in 1996 and is based on hundreds of interviews with different women talking about their, ahem, vaginas. Audience members are not required to have any particular genitalia. The goal is to educate and activate people to end the violence now.
It’s part of the V-day organization, which has raised over $60 million to fund grassroots efforts stop violence against women.
The money raised from the performances will go to the Benton County Women’s Shelter and the women of the congo.
You can purchase tickets at the door, space permitting, or by calling or e-mailing the contacts below.
