The Vagina Monologues

Project Safe presents its 20th and final production of The Vagina Monologues, Eve Ensler’s episodic play confronting issues surrounding sexuality, consent, menstruation, sex work, body image, genital mutilation and birth. Within the past two decades, a dozen different directors and over 450 women have participated in bringing these stories to the local stage. Directed this year by Linnea Ionno, director of adult services at The Cottage, this year’s cast includes 23 performers of all ages and backgrounds. Event proceeds will help fund Project Safe’s various services offered to women and children affected by domestic violence, such as a hotline staff, emergency shelter, therapeutic services and rental deposits.
