V-Day Westport: The Vagina Monologues

Fri, February 21 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm EST

As part of its commitment to innovative creative-arts programming as well as community outreach and support, The Library is proud to present a production of The Vagina Monologues to help raise awareness and funds for The Center for Family Justice and The Rowan Center, two local organizations doing critical anti-violence work in our community.

Twenty-one years ago, Eve Ensler’s play The Vagina Monologues gave birth to V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against all women and girls. Today, the movement is more active than ever, producing art for social change and raising crucial funds for organizations doing anti-violence work worldwide. Poignant and honest, this production brings together a divergent collection of women’s voices, celebrating diversity and the joy and strength that comes from sharing our stories in conversation with others.

The evening begins at 6:30pm with a cocktail reception and introduction to our beneficiary organizations, followed by the performance and a post-performance conversation where the cast and audience are invited to discuss themes and issues brought up in the play.

As part of our participation in V-Day , this performance is a Pay What You Can event. The suggested donation is $20, however all donation levels will be accepted and appreciated. Any proceeds from Pay What You Can go to the Domestic Violence Crisis Center. Sign up here.

Special thanks to our community partners: The Rowan Center, Domestic Violence Crisis Center, Westport Young Woman’s League and Triangle Community Center.

* Some content in this production may not be suitable for audience members under 18. *
