The Vagina Monologues by V Ensler is an award-winning masterpiece. A collection of 12 monologues based on interviews with over 200 women. It is witty, it is moving, it is wise and it is compassionate. A play that has been performed thousands of times around the world for the past 20 years. From an underground production at a secret location in Pakistan, to an ‚emergency’ production in front of the statehouse in Lansing, Michigan after it was claimed the word vagina was now not allowed to be spoken. In front of the Mostar Bridge, Bosnia where the monologue of rape during the war was performed by, and for, the women of Bosnia. And countless performances where the actual title was censored and was called either ‚V. Monologues‘ or simply ‚Monologues‘.
The Vagina Monologues is one of the most important pieces of political theatre. A piece that calls for a world where women are safe, equal, free and alive in their own bodies.
