Vagina Mono­logues Next Week­end

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Vagina Mono­logues, writ­ten by Eve Ensler and di­rected by Hay­den Forde, is made up of a num­ber of mono­logues read by a vary­ing num­ber of women. Each of the mono­logues deals with an as­pect of the fe­male ex­pe­ri­ence touch­ing on var­i­ous mat­ters, for ex­am­ple: sex, love, men­stru­a­tion and rape. Some of th­ese ex­pe­ri­ences in­clude “funny mo­ments”. How­ever, the re­cur­ring theme through­out the piece is the vagina as a tool of fe­male em­pow­er­ment and the ul­ti­mate em­bod­i­ment of in­di­vid­u­al­ity.

This pro­duc­tion em­anated from a work­shop into a play and has been re-en­acted in sev­eral coun­tries. Ev­ery year a new mono­logue is added to high­light a cur­rent is­sue af­fect­ing women around the world.

Lo­cal ac­tors from Gem Stones Pro­duc­tion will be pre­sent­ing “Vagina Mono­logues” on the Roof Top of The Arts Café in down­town Cas­tries on the evenings of 4th and 5th De­cem­ber, 2015 at 8pm.

Spon­sors of the event are Arts Café, GTM. The pro­duc­tion and work­ing team an­tic­i­pates a wide au­di­ence to come and “laugh, cry, and en­gage” as a pre-Christ­mas ac­tiv­ity for adults.
