The Vagina Monologues
by Eve Ensler
14th, 17th and 18th February
at The Admiral’s Pub on Sukhumvit Soi 24
Directed by Mimi Carter
Produced by Don Harrelson
The Vagina Monologues is made up of a varying number of monologues read by a varying number of women (initially, Eve Ensler performed every monologue herself, with subsequent performances featuring three actresses, and more recent versions featuring a different actress for every role). Each of the monologues deals with an aspect of the feminine experience, touching on matters such as sex, love, rape, menstruation, female genital mutilation, masturbation, birth, orgasm, the various common names for the vagina, or simply as a physical aspect of the body. A recurring theme throughout the piece is the vagina as a tool of female empowerment, and the ultimate embodiment of individuality.
In 2017 we are shining the Spotlight on Violence Against Women In the Workplace. Violence against women at work takes place every day, in every country, across socio-economic levels. The additional layer of exploitation is that, in many cases, women facing workplace violence are vulnerable and impeded from speaking out or seeking justice for fear of losing their job. All of this is happening in the context of a global economic reality where it is increasingly difficult for women to even earn a livable wage.
