For the fourth consecutive year, UTC will present a benefit production of The Vagina Monologues at the University Center Auditorium on Thursday and Friday, February 9 and 10, 7 p.m. and on Saturday, February 11, 1 p.m., on behalf of the V-Day 2012 Campaign. Hailed by The New York Times as “funny” and “poignant” and by the Daily News as “intelligent” and “courageous,” The Vagina Monologues, which was first performed off-Broadway by Eve Ensler, dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women’s experiences.
Ensler has performed the play to great acclaim throughout the world, from Zagreb to Santa Barbara, from London to Seattle, from Jerusalem to Oklahoma City. Villard Books/Random House first published The Vagina Monologues, which includes a foreword by Gloria Steinem, in February 1998. A special edition was released in hard cover and paperback in February 2008 in honor of V-Day’s ten year anniversary.
Tickets are $5 for UTC students, with a UTC ID, and $10 for general admission and may be purchased in the University Center lobby on Monday-Friday, February 6-8. They may also be purchased by contacting the Women’s Center, 423-425-5605, or purchase may be made at the door.
This benefit production is sponsored by the UTC Women’s Action Council and Women’s Center with proceeds benefiting the Partnership for Families, Children and Adults and the UTC Transformation Project.
