PEACC to present ‘The Vagina Monologues’
The University of Louisville PEACC program will present a benefit production of “The Vagina Monologues,” an award-winning play by Eve Ensler about women’s experiences, Feb. 9-11.
Performances will be at 7 p.m. nightly at the Playhouse, Cardinal Boulevard between Second and Third streets. Admission is $8 ($6 in advance) for college students with an ID and $10 for faculty, staff and community members.
The performance is part of V-Day, a global movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of “The Vagina Monologues” and other artistic works. Last year, UofL was one of more than 5,800 sites worldwide to host V-Day events.
Each year, V-Day selects a spotlight campaign to benefit. For the second year, a portion of funds raised at each V-Day event worldwide will go to support women and girls in Haiti as the nation continues to recover from a 2010 earthquake. The money will support domestic and sexual violence shelters and services in the country.
A portion of the funds raised from the UofL performances will also go to support UofL’s PEACC program. PEACC stands for Prevention, Education and Advocacy on Campus and in the Community. The program works to end violence against women.
The PEACC production is in its eighth year. This year’s cast includes students, faculty, staff and community members.
