Eve Ensler, the writer of the play, “The Vagina Monologues,” wrote her script based on her interviews with over 200 women on the subject of being a woman. The award winning, off-broadway play is annually performed by AU students, and this year’s show started on Friday night. The monologues concern commonly marginalized topics of feminism, gender equality, sexuality, body image and self confidence. While the issues are serious and many monologues reflect that, a majority of the play is light-hearted and funny. Tickets are $7.
When: Feb. 19th 7 p.m., Feb. 20 2 p.m., Feb. 21 2 p.m.
Where: American University, Mary Graydon Center 2-5
