The Vagina Monologues - 10th Anniversary Edition by Eve Ensler at Stone Soup Theatre
Stone Soup Presents the 10th Anniversary Edition of
Ensler's Vagina Monologues EXTENDED!
In 2005, Stone Soup Theatre ran sold out performances of the Vagina Monologues for 5 months, a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and mysteries, guaranteeing no one who sees it will ever look at women's bodies or think of sex in quite the same way again. This time around, the piece has been running since April 2 and has now, due to critical success and audience demand, been extended through mid-May.
Five additional monologues have been written for a V-Day spotlight or situation in the world where women are totally at risk, raped, murdered or dismissed. A new chapter develops with a man who is transgendered after years of abuse and dismissal. The suffering of the woman trapped in the wrong body gives us a poignant look at how a vagina gave a man new life.
The 10th anniversary edition will be celebrated with The Vagina Monologues V, featuring the 5 never-before-published monologues directed by Tyrone Brown. These stunning additions to the original text are based on interviews with women in the Native American culture, the Comfort Women of 40's Japan and a boy who wanted nothing more than to have a vagina among others.
Set once again in the intimacy of Stone Soup theatre's Upstage space, the gender-diverse, multi-ethnic cast features the talents of the "Eve" cast: Aiden Karamanyan, Camille Campbell, Frances Hearn, Geni Hawkins and Melissa Topscher, performing on Friday and Sunday, while Heather Ward, Janet Hietter, Joan Patrie, Melissa Malloy, and Marisol Sanchez make up the "Ensler" cast on Thursday and Saturday evenings.
The production has been extended through May 16 and runs Thursdays Sundays. Evening showtimes are 8:00 pm, while matinees are at 2:00 pm. General admission prices are $16-20; $13 for those under 30. All Thursday performances are $10.
Tickets are available for purchase at www.brownpapertickets.com, 800-838-3006 or Stone Soup Box Office (206) 633-1883; www.stonesouptheatre.org.
