Vagina Monologues returns to Manchester stage to benefit

Wabash shelter for abused women

 

       The Vagina Monologues, Eve Ensler’s OBIE Award-winning play celebrating the sexuality and strength of women and the suppression they endure, returns to Manchester College on Friday, Feb. 24 to benefit women’s shelters.

       Manchester College joins more than 860 colleges and communities presenting benefit productions of The Vagina Monologues in February and March to raise money to stop violence against women.

       Students, faculty and staff members of the College community will present 19 monologues. While humor surrounds many of the monologues, seriousness is ever-present as the actors remind the audience of rape, mutilation and other acts of violence against women.

       The two-act play begins at 7 p.m. in Wampler Auditorium. Tickets are $5 at the door, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Hands of Hope women’s shelter in Wabash. In 2004, Manchester’s production of The Vagina Monologues raised more than $650 for charity.

       Hands of Hope is organized through Family Services of Wabash County to serve victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse with counseling and shelter. For more information about Hands of Hope, call 260-553-4407.
