The Vagina Monologues is an episodic play written by Eve Ensler that addresses women’s resiliency, sensuality, and the social stigma surrounding women in relationship to their body image, bodily functions, sexuality and sexual pleasure.

When playwright Eve Ensler had completed tens of thousands of interviews with women worldwide, she wrote The Vagina Monologues and began to perform it at the Westside Theatre in New York City in 1996. The New York Times hailed her production as ‘probably the most important piece of political theater ever performed.’ Both sexually and physically abused by her father, Ms. Ensler was determined to make a lasting difference in the world. In 1998, she was inspired to create V-Day (, a global activist movement to stop violence against women and girls. Raising funds and awareness through annual benefit productions of The Vagina Monologues, The V-Day movement has raised over 100 million dollars resulting in the opening of domestic violence shelters in the US, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. She has won countless awards for her work and The Vagina Monologues has been performed in over 48 languages in 140 countries.

Performance Times: Tuesday, March 20 at 6:00p; Saturday, March 24 at 3pm; and Sunday, March 25 at 1pm.
