The Albany Barn Seeks Participants for “The Vagina Monologues”

V-Day Albany Barn 2018
on February 17th, 2018

Join Us As We Celebrate The 20th Anniversary of The Vagina Monologues & the Founding of V-Day, the Global Activist Movement to End Violence Against
Women and Girls.
On February 17, 2018, V-Day Albany Barn will present a one-night only benefit reading of Eve Ensler’s award winning play The Vagina Monologues at Albany Barn.

Auditions will be held on Tuesday, January 16th at 7pm at the Albany Barn.  Please come prepared to read an excerpt from the script (scripts will be provided) OR to share a anecdote no longer than 2 minutes in length.

All women and non-binary individuals are invited to audition and bring in their individual identities and experiences to their performance; participation does not involve vagina-essentialism, but a connection to the themes and narratives expressed in the play. Interested in participating in the event, but would rather be behind the scenes?  Let us know!

Email with questions.

Over the past two decades, tens of thousands of communities and college campuses have staged V-Day benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works, campaigns & Risings in over 200 countries and territories. V-Day activists have raised consciousness, changed laws to protect women and girls, funded rape crisis centers and domestic violence shelters (often times these much needed funds kept them from closing), educated their communities, and raised well over $100 million in urgently needed funds for groups doing the essential work of ending violence and serving survivors and their families.

For its 20th anniversary, V-Day is calling on activists around the world to Rise, Resist and Unite. Welcome to V-Season 2018.

What are The Vagina Monologues?

The New York Times called The Vagina Monologues, “probably the *most important piece of political theater of the last decade.” The play – first performed Off-Broadway and in locations around the world by Ms. Ensler “dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement in women’s experiences.”  VDay grew out of the play which exploded onto the scene in 1998, breaking taboos about women?s sexuality and shattering silence around violence done to women and girls.
