‘Vagina Monologues’ returns to stage at BIMA

The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art will present a production of “The Vagina Monologues” at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21 and Saturday, Feb. 22 in the Frank Buxton Auditorium as part of V-Day.

The award-winning play is based on V-Day Founder/playwright Eve Ensler’s interviews with more than 200 women. With humor and grace, the piece celebrates women’s sexuality and strength.

V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls began on Feb. 14, 1998. It’s mission is to raise funds and awareness to end violence against all women and girls (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities that are subject to gender-based violence).

Tickets, $12 to $15 each, are on sale via www.brownpapertickets.com (Event #4403753). Visit www.biartmuseum.org to learn more.

Through V-Day, activists stage royalty-free benefit performances of “The Vagina Monologues” to “fund local programs, support safe houses, rape crisis centers, and domestic violence shelters, change laws to protect women and girls, and educate local communities to raise awareness and change social attitudes toward violence against women” during the month February, with most of the benefit productions taking place on or about Feb. 14.

Ensler has been quoted as saying that it was women’s reactions to the play that inspired her and her colleagues to launch V-Day (the ‘V’ stands for Victory, Valentine and Vagina).
