SYNOPSIS & INFORMATION
Island ETC is pleased to announce the return of Eve Ensler’s award winning play, THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES for four special performances. We are very excited to also announce the return of many of our original cast members and the addition of some of Ensler’s more current monologues to this funny, thought-provoking, and empowering production.
THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES will be presented for four performances on Friday and Saturday, January 16th, 17th, 23rd, and 24th. All four performances will begin at 8:00pm. All performances will be at Island ETC (East-End Theatre Company), 2317 Mechanic Street in Galveston.
Each season, Island ETC tries to make a difference for another local nonprofit organization. Earlier this season a diaper drive was held during a performance of THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB – a donation of diapers to the Galveston Diaper Bank in exchange for a ticket. We are extremely proud to announce that a portion of our net proceeds from all four performances of THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES will go directly to the Resource and Crisis Center of Galveston County, Inc. It is the mission of the RCCGC to promote safety, well-being, and the best interests of victims of family violence, sexual assault, and child abuse, as well as to advocate for the prevention of such crimes. ETC is honored to be able to provide some assistance to this remarkable organization.
THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES by Eve Ensler is a poignant and hilarious tour of the ‘last frontier,’ the ultimate forbidden zone. THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES is a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery. Based on interviews of more than 200 women, THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES is a testimonial of women’s experiences on their journey through sexual discovery. These women share their most intimate desires and fears in a backdrop of heartbreak, humor, and sometimes violence. The power of THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES has affected audiences throughout the world since its inception in 1996.
Bringing these interviews to life are a group of multi-talented and beautiful women from throughout the county including: Kristin Bingley, Terri Burchfield, Amy Grant, Mary Jo Naschke, Jan Pozzi, Ruth Finkelstein-Suhler, Joan Finn White, Barbara Winburn, Lisa Marie Daugherty, Robin Lusby Schaefer, and Kim Mytelka.
Tickets may be purchased on our TICKETS page. Special rates are available for groups of ten or more. For more information about THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES, Island ETC, or group rates, please call the theatre at (409) 762-3556.
