An award-winning play is back just in time for Valentine’s Day.
The Vagina Monologues will the held at Wilkes University this weekend. It is a series of dramatic monologues.
The production was written by Eve Ensler and it shows the audience all about the experiences that women go through on a daily basis. The main purpose of the show is to give special attention to a woman’s body and her sexuality, which are frequently ignored. The Monologues cover all different stages of a woman’s life.
One is about an elderly woman speaking about her vagina the first time to a male sex worker who is obsessed with making many women happy in a sexual way.
This play is celebrating the female strengths and also their sexuality. Director of Vagina Monologues, Salena Diaz, said, “Students should see it because it is fun and informative. It is so important to realize that our bodies are nothing to be ashamed of and that we should be able to speak about them openly and proudly”.
Students should be proud and confident with their bodies. They shouldn’t be scared to talk about them.
The ticket sales proceeds will be going to the Victim’s Resource Center and the Domestic Violence Service Center. Students will also collect feminine hygiene products and infant formula for the Community Center’s work in the Dominican Republic at the show.
The show is being held Friday, Feb. 10 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 11 at 2 p.m. The event takes place in Wilkes’ Henry Student Center Ballroom.
Admission is free for Wilkes students with valid I.D., $5 for non-Wilkes students with valid I.D. and $10 for the general public
