"The Vagina Monologues" to be Performed at Suffolk University

1/15/2002

Who: As part of the V-Day 2002 College Campaign, the Student Performing Arts Program at Suffolk University will present a benefit production of "The Vagina Monologues," an Obie Award-winning play, on February 21, 22 and 23, 2002, beginning at 8:00 p.m. in Suffolk University's C. Walsh Theatre.
What: V-Day is a worldwide movement to stop violence against women and girls. The first V-Day was held in 1998 in a New York City theatre with a performance of the play by some of our country's biggest stars - Glenn Close, Whoopi Goldberg, Susan Sarandon, Winona Ryder, Lily Tomlin and Calista Flockhart. "The Vagina Monologues" dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement burned in women's experiences. Based on interviews with a diverse group of hundreds of women, "The Vagina Monologues" brazenly explores questions often pondered, but seldom asked.

When:

Thursday, February 21, Friday, February 22 and Saturday, February 23. All performances begin at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 and may be reserved by phoning 617-305-6307.
Where: Suffolk University's C. Walsh Theatre
41 Temple Street, Boston, MA
Why: The V-Day College Campaign has raised awareness about the problem of violence against women and girls around the world by celebrating V-Day on more than 450 colleges worldwide. All ticket proceeds from the Suffolk University performances will go to the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, a local organization providing 24-hour support and advocacy for women and girls.
