Vagina Monologues performances to raise funds, awareness
The Obie Award-winning Eve Ensler play The Vagina Monologues is being performed Feb. 26 to 28 at 8 p.m. in War Memorial Hall to raise funds for a campus group and a local agency.
Proceeds from the play will go to U of G’s Sexual Assault-Free Environment (SAFE) team and Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis. The performance is part of the V-Day campaign, an international initiative to raise awareness about sexual violence against women and girls.
Since it was first presented in 1996, The Vagina Monologues has been performed in hundreds of cities around the world. With the 1997 launch of the V-Day college campaign, the play has been performed on more than 300 campuses world-wide during the month of February, raising $3 million for organizations fighting for the rights of women.
Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Tickets are available at the Central Student Association, Room 274 of the University Centre, and the Wellness Centre, second floor of the Powell Building.
