Local Production of “The Vagina Monologues” to Benefit Calvary

This Saturday, head to the beautiful Anacostia Arts Center for a bold and engaging performance of The Vagina Monologues! Join community members, advocates and artists in bringing awareness to ending violence against women.

The Vagina Monologues East of the River on Feb. 28 will feature dramatic readings from members of the community. In addition to performances, the event will include a silent auction. Proceeds from the event are being generously donated to Calvary Women’s Services in support of our housing programs and services for women.

Tickets for The Vagina Monologues East of the River are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. To purchase tickets in advance, click here. Thank you for supporting Calvary through your ticket purchase!

The Vagina Monologues was written by playwright, feminist and activist Eve Ensler, and first premiered in New York City in the 1990s. The Vagina Monologues elevates the voices of different women and their experiences with sex, relationships, violence and their bodies. Each monologue is unique and tells a story that can pivot from bold and hilarious to traumatic.

Locally-organized productions of the The Vagina Monologues are now performed around the nation as part of the V-Day movement. From February 1 to April 30 each year, V-Day holds events aimed to create a dialogue around women’s issues and violence against women and girls. The Vagina Monologues East of the River is one of many V-Day events organized to increase awareness, raise money for various women-focused programs and support anti-violence organizations.
