For the fifth year in a row, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga will present a benefit production of The Vagina Monologues on Thursday, February 21 at 7 p.m., Friday, February 22, at 7 p.m., and Saturday, February 23, at 2 p.m. at the University Center Auditorium.
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 toSeattle, 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 students (with ID) and $10 for general admission and may be purchased in the University Center lobby on February 18-20, by contacting the Women’s Center at 423-425-5605 or at the door.
This 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.
