Female Empowerment Play Presented at Winchester Feb. 28 and March 1
The Spanish version of Eve Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues” will be presented by VDay LV en Espanol at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday Feb. 28 and March 1 at the Winchester Cultural Center Theater, 3130 S. McLeod Drive, just north of Desert Inn Road. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 the day of the show and can be purchased in person or online at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/parksregistration. The show is geared specifically for ages 13 and older.
The group has presented the play at various locations in the Las Vegas Valley for the last eight years as a statement for women’s liberation. “The Vagina Monologues” is made up of a varying number of monologues performed by various women. Each of the vignettes deals with an aspect of the feminine experience, touching on matters such as sex, love, menstruation, birth and various terms for the female reproductive system as a physical aspect of the human body. A recurring theme throughout the piece is the vagina as a tool for female empowerment and the ultimate embodiment of individuality.
Part of the proceeds will go to Safe Faith United, a Las Vegas nonprofit working against domestic violence and its effects.
Those interested in the Spanish version of “The Vagina Monologues” can call the Winchester Cultural Center at (702) 455-7340 or visit the website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/parks. Clark County Parks and Recreation also can be found on social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook.
