'V' is for Vagina, as in the Monologues being peformed in the run up to Valentine's Day


Mystery.  Comedy.  Tragedy.  ...Romance?

For the three days leading up to Valentine's Day, (tonight, tomorrow, and Saturday), Eve Ensler's award-winning play, the "Vagina Monologues," will be performed at University of Louisville Playhouse.  The show, a series of theatrical vignettes, interviews, and ensemble pieces, incorporate all of the above genres in a powerful and informative show about, you guessed it, vaginas.

"V-day" refers to a global movement to end violence against women and girls by raising funds via benefit productions of the Vagina Monologues.  The U of L cast includes members of their faculty, community, and student body.  Proceeds will benefit PEACC, a program working to end violence against women at the University of Louisville.

Show starts at 7pm, tickets $10 each, ($8 students). Call 852-2663 for more information.
