On February 28, 2018, at 6 p.m. V-Day Asnuntuck Community College will present a one-night only benefit reading of Eve Ensler’s award winning play The Vagina Monologues at Asnuntuck Community College. Kathryn D. Pepe will direct the play.  Over the past two decades, tens of thousands of communities and college campuses have staged V-Day benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues – and other artistic works, in more than 200 countries and territories. V-Day activists have raised consciousness, changed laws to protect women and girls, funded rape crisis centers and domestic violence shelters (often times these much needed funds kept them from closing), educated their communities, and raised well over $100 million in urgently needed funds for groups doing the essential work of ending violence and serving survivors and their families.

For its 20th anniversary, V-Day is calling on activists around the world to Rise, Resist and Unite. Welcome to V-Season 2018.

What are The Vagina Monologues

The New York Times called The Vagina Monologues, “probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade.” The play – first performed Off-Broadway and in locations around the world by Ms. Ensler – dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement in women’s experiences.  V-Day grew out of the play, which exploded onto the scene in 1998, breaking taboos about women’s sexuality and shattering silence around violence done to women and girls.  

The Vagina Monologues will be performed at Asnuntuck Community College, 170 Elm Street, Enfield, 6 p.m. on February 28th. Suggested donation is $5 at the door. The event is open to the community.
