On Friday, March 28, and Saturday, March 29, 2014 at 8:00 pm, The Graduate Institute will present a two-night only benefit performance of Eve Ensler’s award winning play The Vagina Monologues at its main campus, located at 171 Amity Road in Bethany. Event proceeds will be donated to organizations working to end violence against women and girls, including the Umbrella Center for Domestic Violence Services at BHcare in Ansonia, CT (http://www.bhcare.org/).
Hailed by The New York Times as "funny" and "poignant" and by the Daily News as "intelligent" and "courageous," The Vagina Monologues, which was first performed off-Broadway by Ms. Ensler, dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women’s experiences. Ms. Ensler has performed the play to great acclaim throughout the world - from Zagreb to Santa Barbara, from London to Seattle, from Jerusalem to Oklahoma City. Villard Books/Random House first published The Vagina Monologues, which includes a foreword by Gloria Steinem, in February 1998. A special edition was released in hard cover and paperback in February 2008 in honor of V-Day’s ten year anniversary.
