Homecoming for Vagina Monologues after 12 years

Last, it was seen in 2004 and since then theatre patrons have been waiting patiently for the impeccable play, Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues. It now makes a comeback to the capital on November 18 at blueFROG. This powerful play, an unusual blend of outrageous comedy and heart-breaking drama, tells the story of women like you have never heard before.
From the Maharashtrian woman who met a man who ‘loved to look at her’ to a Parsi woman who hasn’t been ‘down there since 1944’, this play promises to enlighten and entertain you like no other play. The piece de resistance of the evening is a medley of the Big ‘O’. It has been truly said of Ensler's masterpiece, that after watching it, no man or woman will ever be the same again.
The Vagina Monologues has been part of a larger movement here called V-Day India. This movement, along with the play, has helped raise awareness and funds to combat and eliminate violence against women and girls. To date, The Vagina Monologues in India has raised upwards of `80 lakh to donate to individuals and organisations working towards ending violence against women and girls. The line up includes Sonali Sachdev, Avantika Akerkar, Mahabanoo, Mody-Kotwal and Dolly Thakore.
