Next weekend, I will be appearing in The Vagina Monologues with a group of freaking amazing actresses. It’s a heartwarming, heartbreaking, hilarious play and the proceeds help out two great causes. I am VERY excited about this and I truly hope to see lots of my Maine buddies there.
Here’s the basic info:
WHERE: Waterfall Arts (Fallout Shelter) 256 High St, Belfast Maine
WHEN: Friday and Saturday, March 4 and 5 at 7:15 PM
A light dinner will be available before the show for $7.
Proceeds to benefit vday.org and New Hope For Women, an organization which offers support to people in Lincoln, Knox and Waldo counties (Maine) affected by domestic and dating violence and provides educational resources to assist communities in creating a safer and healthier future.
The Vagina Monologues is an episodic play written by Eve Ensler, which ran at the off-Broadway Westside Theatre after a limited run at HERE Arts Center in 1996. Ensler originally starred in the production; when she left the play it was recast with three celebrity monologists. The production has been staged internationally, and a television version featuring Ensler was produced by the cable TV channel HBO. In 1998, Ensler and others, including Willa Shalit, a producer of the Westside Theatre production, launched V-Day, a global non-profit that has raised over $75 million for women’s anti-violence groups through benefits of The Vagina Monologues.
