Letter: Vagina Monologues still relevant

Great to see that that the play The Vagina Monologues is to be performed again in Penticton

Great to see that that the play The Vagina Monologues is to be performed again in Penticton after a long gap.

I urge people to see the production at Many Hats/ Nest and Nectar theatre March 10 and 11 which will benefit the South Okanagan Women in Need Society. Eve Ensler’s iconic play is still really relevant today.

I remember when I directed and performed in the very first performance of the Vagina Monologues in Penticton in 2002, we had a stage full of women of all ages and acting experience. The play caused quite a stir in those days. I remember we played to a sellout house at the Cleland Theatre, but there were some letters to the editors.

Strangely the people who complained the most had not actually seen the play.

Break a Leg to the cast and crew of this year’s Vagina Monologues.

I’ll be cheering you all on— if I can still get a ticket!
