The Vagina Monologues revolutionized the world after it began in 1996, when Eve Ensler interviewed 200 women about the details of their feminine experience; anecdotes about sex, relationships, attraction, and sometimes violence. Eve turned these women's stories into a one-woman-monologue off-Broadway show, and from there it spread like wildfire.
The run away success of that show spurred many more productions around the world, with ensemble casts - often starring and supported by celebrities and notable activists.
Eve Ensler started The V-Day movement, which is a global activist initiative to end violence against women and girls. All the proceeds from every performance of The Vagina Monologues goes to support women's causes, centres and shelters within the community. This year's shows proceeds go to SARSSM: Sexual Assault Response Services of Southern Maine
The 8 amazing women in this cast, comprised of business owners, activists, students, mothers, daughters, and talented performers, are all honored and inspired to be a part of this production. The Vagina Monologues directed by Jo Kilburn is debuting at Metta Studios. This years performance welcomes all the cast members, volunteers, and Lindsay McDonough as Producer.
