“The Vagina Monologues,” an episodic play by Tony-Award winning playwright and activist Eve Ensler is coming back to Clatsop Community College for its second appearance.
Opening night is March 9 with a second production March 10. Both productions begin at 7:00 pm. at the CCC Performing Arts Center, located at 16th and Franklin in Astoria.
The performances are a class project for Mindy Stokes’ Women and Social Action course. Organized by Women’s Studies instructor Stokes, the performances help students and other members of the campus community participate in V-Day. V-Day is celebrated February through April and began to create dialogue and shatter taboos around violence against women and girls through thousands of events in over 140 countries. Today, V-Day includes over 58,000 events annually.
Last year almost 200 people attended the performance and raised more than $1,000 which was donated to organizations that work to end violence against women. V-Day is a time to dream of a world in which women and children will be free to thrive rather than merely survive. With our community’s support we can make this happen. Admission tickets for $10 can be purchased at the door each the night of the event.
