Project Safe, a local nonprofit organization that works to end domestic violence, presents the 12 annual production of Eve Ensler’s award-winning play, The Vagina Monologues, but this year brings some changes. “Director Dawn Garland is making a concerted effort to switch things up this year with a diverse cast, some fresh ideas for the standard monologues and the addition of previously unused monologues to the production,” says cast member Marisa Castengera. The production is in honor of V-Day, an international movement that works to raise awareness about violence against women. All proceeds raised from the play’s ticket sales will directly benefit Project Safe’s programs. Tickets can be purchased at the door, at the Project Safe Thrift Store on Hawthorne Avenue and at P.S. Too on Gaines School Road. (Show is at 8 p.m.; tickets are $15) more information, call 706-549-0922 or visit www.project-safe.org.
