This hilariously witty and moving collection of stories which arose following playwright and performance artist Eve Ensler's interviews with over 200 women from a wide range of ages and cultural backgrounds. Many of them bared their proverbial souls and responded to questions such as: what would your vagina say if it could talk? and if you could dress your vagina, what would it wear?
In 1996, The Vagina Monologues began as a one-woman show, a series of character-driven pieces, almost like poetry, each revealing a different woman’s experience with topics such as: sex, love, tenderness, embarrassment, cruelty, pain, and pleasure. As the show increased in popularity, it began to be performed by an ensemble of actresses. Politically active theaters and college campuses began producing the Monologues, all of which helped to launch a global movement known as V-Day.
The Vagina Monologues is at the Palace Theatre on 16 November.
