Vagina Monologues

This February, The Vagina Monologues, a play by Eve Ensler, celebrates its 20 th anniversary.

The production will be staged in Kelowna this Thursday, February 22 nd , 2018 and Friday February 23 rd ,
2018 to help raise awareness about violence against women and children. Director, Jessalyn Broadfoot,
has cast 21 local women to bring these powerful stories to life.

It’s a collection of 35 monologues based on real life accounts about vaginas. Using humour, tenderness,
and raw honesty, the play celebrates women’s ownership of their bodies and sexuality.

“We encourage men to bring their favourite ladies. It’s a play for everyone. Vaginas are important to all
of us,” explains Dione Russell, actor and publicist for the play.

And so are the women who own them. “One in three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in
their lifetime,” says Broadfoot. “We want to invite our community to stand united against this hugely
relevant issue.”

All proceeds for the play go to the Elizabeth Fry Society in support of local victims of violence and rape.
The Vagina Monologues will be held at Bean Scene Landmark on Thursday February 22 nd and at The
Laurel Packinghouse Friday February 23 rd both at 8PM. Tickets can be purchased at eventbrite.ca.
