Come to The Vagina Monologues!
Based on V-Day founder Eve Ensler's Obie award winning play, The Vagina Monologues explores and celebrates women's sexuality. By turns passionate, amusing, devastating, emotional, and empowering, this collection of stories taken from interviews with women throughout the world has developed into an international phenomenon that gives voice to women's relationships with their vaginas.
This year we have two performances, so you can come twice!
Friday, March 7, at 7:00pm (doors open at 6:30pm)
Saturday, March 8, at 7:00pm (doors open at 6:30pm)
Statler Auditorium, in Statler Hall
Tickets will be sold for $9 in advance and $10 at the door, with ALL proceeds benefiting the Advocacy Center in Ithaca (which works to end violence and support survivors in Tompkins County) and V-Day (an organization that works to end violence against women and girls globally). In the past we have raised over $9,000 in a single performance for these amazing organizations! We hope you'll support the performance and its beneficiaries this year!
