Charity fundraiser 'Vagina Monologues' returns
Students perform Eve Ensler’s hit play The Vagina Monologues at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14, in the Olin Arts Center Concert Hall, 75 Russell St. The public is invited and donations will be gratefully accepted, with proceeds to support a local charity.
Eve Ensler is an award-winning playwright, poet, activist and screenwriter. For The Vagina Monologues, she asked a diverse group of women about their thoughts and feelings about their sexuality. The play Ensler created from these interviews relates women’s stories in terms that are personal yet universal, comic and poignant, brazen and mysterious.
Since its Obie-winning premiere, in 1996, the play has been performed to broad acclaim worldwide, including hundreds of college campuses. Productions have featured such top actors as Glenn Close, Cate Blanchett, Winona Ryder, Susan Sarandon, Marisa Tomei, Rosie Perez, Lily Tomlin, Kate Winslett, Melanie Griffith and Calista Flockhart.
