Why do you think The Vagina Mono­logues is such a pop­u­lar pro­duc­tion?

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - Planner -

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.
