The 7th annual V-Day production of the Vagina Monologues will be performed February 14 and 15 at Quest University. The production is directed and produced by Quest University students and features an all student cast. Created by anti-violence activist Eve Ensler, the Vagina Monologues is based on interviews with over 200 women about their bodies and experiences of sexuality and violence.
Performed as part of V-Day, a global movement to end violence against women and girls, the Vagina Monologues celebrates women’s sexuality, strength and empowerment while raising awareness about violence against women and girls. The goal of the production is to serve as a catalyst encouraging dialogue about violence against women and girls in our community to work towards a violence-free future.
All proceeds from the production will benefit Pearl’s Place Transition House, operated by Howe Sound Women’s Centre Society. Pearl’s Place Transition House provides emergency housing in a safe and secure environment for women and their children leaving an abusive relationship. Last year, 54 women and 20 children accessed the Transition House and our support staff fielded over 250 crisis calls through our 24 Hour Crisis Line.
The performance of A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer will be held in the Multipurpose Room at Quest University with entry by donation. Doors open at 7:00pm, the production starts at 7:30 pm.
