Why do you think The Vagina Monologues is such a popular production?
To me, The Vagina Monologues tackles topics that are considered taboo, that when you think about them, really should not be. The play depicts the perspectives of people with vaginas from all over the world who have been given the freedom to say what they really think about what they’ve got going on downstairs. I think the enduring nature of the play is due to its dark humour and relatability. The issues written about when it was first published in 1996 are still current. Women are still shamed for their body hair and clothes, are still being raped and are still being made to smell like flowers down there.
