The Vagina Monologues

The Vagina Monologues

Please be aware that this show contains adult content and language that may not be appropriate for young children. 

On February 22, 2018, at 7:30pm, V-Day Interagency Council will present a one-night only benefit reading of Eve Ensler’s award winning play The Vagina Monologues at Grace Arts Live.

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. V-Day 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. 

About V-Day
Over these past two decades V-Day has had an improbable journey, charting a path that has been unparalleled - tens of thousands of communities and college campuses have staged benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues – and other works and campaigns created by V-Day – 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. From the Congo, where V-Day supports the City of Joy, a leadership center for survivors of violence where women can heal themselves, to One Billion Rising, the largest mass action to stop violence against women in history, to its work with a broad coalition of groups advocating for an end to workplace violence for women, including nurses, hotel workers, farm workers, restaurant workers and more, V-Day has its pulse on issues women face across the globe.

V-Day Interagency Council is a local effort within the worldwide context of the 20th Anniversary V-Day Campaign.

Arizona’s Unsolved Mysteries

Hosted by Lake Havasu Museum of History @ ASU Santiago Room 107

We are intrigued by unsolved mysteries, because it would seem almost impossible for anyone to totally vanish from the face of the earth at any time. This is especially true in our day and age when a host of computer data tracks everyone; yet bodies to disappear with astonishing frequency. In some cases it may be presumed that people wished to disappear, but then why? Even more unsettling is the realization that certain people may have gotten away with the perfect crime. Whether the unsolved mystery is more than a hundred years old or recent does not seem to make much difference. Perhaps the most enduring quality of an unsolved mystery is that it continues to haunt us.

Arizona Humanities programs sponsored by the Lake Havasu City Allied Arts Council, Inc., Party Express. A wine and cheese reception for members only is from 5:30-6:30 p.m., in Santiago 107, and the program will follow at 7 p.m. in Santiago 109. Signs will be posted to direct attendees. The program is free and open to the public.
