Eugene, OR– The ASUO Women’s Center at the University of Oregon is proud to announce that we have been granted the rights to put on a benefit production of Eve Ensler’s award-winning ensemble play, “The Vagina Monologues.”
The Eugene/Springfield Shadowed Production of The Vagina Monologues is part of the Women Center’s V-Day 2015 Campaign. Last year over 5,800 V-Day benefits were held around the world raising funds and awareness towards ending violence against women. These highly successful events raised over $5 million through performance of The Vagina Monologues, films, community briefings and large-scale benefits all geared towards putting an end to violence against women. The Eugene/Springfield Shadowed Production of The Vagina Monologues 2015 has joined this global movement.
For the first time ever in Eugene/Springfield The Vagina Monologues will present an all shadowed production and will be performed by two performers in simultaneously. One will be doing American Sign Language (ASL) and the other will be voicing English. This is not an interpreted production but rather a production where performers have worked together to present ASL and English together in unison.
Hailed by The New York Times as “funny” and “poignant” and by the Daily News as “intelligent” and “courageous,” The Vagina Monologues, which was first performed off-Broadway by Ms. Ensler, dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women’s experiences. Ms. Ensler has performed the play to great acclaim throughout the world – from Zagreb to Santa Barbara, from London to Seattle, from Jerusalem to Oklahoma City. Villard Books/Random House first published The Vagina Monologues, which includes a foreword by Gloria Steinem, in February 1998. A special edition was released in hardcover and paperback in February 2008 in honor of V-Day’s ten year anniversary.
The Vagina Monologues will be performed at The University of Oregon, Global Scholars Hall on Saturday, February 14th at 7pm and Sunday, February 15th at 2pm, with doors opening one hour prior. Tickets are $10 on Saturday and $8 on Sunday with a $1.15 processing fee and may be purchased at http://tickets.uoregon.edu/
