The Vagina Monologues is a play written by Eve Ensler, and is based on interviews with over 200 women. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the play being performed across the world. The purpose of the Monologues is to raise funds and awareness for anti-violence groups in our local communities in an effort to end domestic and sexual violence against women. 90% percent of the proceeds from this production will go directly to Helpmate of Asheville (www.helpmateonline.org), 10% of the proceeds benefit the international V-Day spotlight campaign: The Resistance, and all of our cast are volunteers.
This is not just a show for women; men are especially encouraged to attend. These are issues that affect your mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, and friends. And you know what? Although there are aspects of the show that are heart-wrenching, the majority of it is absolutely hilarious!
This event is a fundraising effort spearheaded by Allison Taylor of WNC Weddings & Events (www.wncweddings.net
) and Skillful Solutions, LLC (www.skillfulsolutions.net
), who is managing the casting, directing, and producing, as well as contributing on-stage. She will be joined by a phenomenal cast of local women, who will make you laugh hysterically, cringe in empathy, and emerge with passion and hope. Her productions have raised over $25,000 for local women’s shelters over the past five years.
The Vagina Monologues is part of the V-Day campaign where volunteers produce a benefit performance in the community to raise awareness and funds for anti-violence groups within our own communities. V-Day is a global activist movement to stop violence against women and girls. Use your voice by joining the ONE BILLION RISING movement.
