Students reprise "Vagina Monologues" this weekend

Feb. 3, 2005

KALAMAZOO--The seventh annual student-produced performances of Eve Ensler's critically acclaimed "The Vagina Monologues" will be staged this weekend in the Dalton Center Recital Hall at Western Michigan University. Admission is $5 and shows begin at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 4-5, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 6.

WMU student organization Womyn's Equality is again sponsoring the performances, which include about 20 individual skits, some of which are unique to this year's shows. The skits, which range from somber to hilarious, deal with a wide range of women's and domestic issues. More than two dozen students are involved in the production.

"The Vagina Monologues" was nominated for Drama Desk and Helen Hayes awards and won an Obie Award in 1997. The world tour performances launched V-Day, an international movement to end violence against women.

More information about V-Day is available on the Web at <www.vday.org>.
