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!
