The Vagina Monologues is a play written by the American writer and actor, Eve Ensler who was inspired by interviews with hundreds of women worldwide in her research and originally performed all the monologues herself in a compelling one woman show.
Despite the rather confronting title, The Vagina Monologues is spellbinding, funny and at times incredibly moving.
The project is designed to be equal parts entertaining, informative and empowering – and above all, to send a strong message about violence against women.
An episodic play, The Vagina Monologues was first staged in 1996 at the Westside Theatre in New York where Charles Isherwood of The New York Times called it “probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade.”
The Vagina Monologues is made up of several monologues selected from dozens written by Eve Ensler over the years.
Each monologue deals with an aspect of the feminine experience, touching on matters such as sex, love, rape, menstruation, orgasm and birth.
A recurring theme throughout the show is the vagina as a tool of female empowerment, the ultimate embodiment of individuality and also that violence against women should never be condoned.
