Montgomery College Students to Perform ‘The Vagina Monologues’
Proceeds from Feb. 18 Production to Benefit Women’s Organizations

The Montgomery College women’s studies program and the women's studies student group will present a special February 18 production of “The Vagina Monologues,” by Eve Ensler.  The performance will take place at the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus on Saturday, Feb. 18, at 7:30 p.m., in the Black Box Theater, located in the Communications Arts Center on Chicago Avenue in Takoma Park, Md. 

The production features students, faculty and staff as performers, with all proceeds going to organizations that work to stop violence against women and girls.  The production is part of the V-Day College Campaign, an initiative that encourages students to stage benefit performances of “The Vagina Monologues” in a fundraising effort for women’s organizations. 

“The Vagina Monologues” is a collection of monologues that Eve Ensler wrote after interviewing hundreds of women.  The final product is a play that celebrates women and works to raise awareness about both positive and negative issues that affect women, such as sexuality and relationships as well as abuse and domestic violence.  These intimate portraits of women reveal their innermost thoughts and feelings about their lives and their bodies.  “The Vagina Monologues” contains frank language and is intended for a mature audience. 

Tickets for “The Vagina Monologues” cost $12 for adults; $6 for students and seniors.  For ticket information and disability-related accommodations, contact Deborah Taylor at 301-650-1619.
