“The Vagina Monologues” will be in more than 800 venues worldwide this month.

In Nevada City, the hard-hitting, Obie Award-winning play will be presented tonight at 7.

“The Vagina Monologues” is based on interviews with hundreds of women and is part of the V-Day global movement to stop violence against women and girls in every country.

“After hearing an interview with the playwright, Eve Ensler, on a National Public Radio program, I knew that I wanted to find a way to bring these amazing women’s stories to Nevada County,” said Andrea Fox, the V-Day Nevada County organizer.

“Attending an evening of ‘The Vagina Monologues’ is a chance for people to laugh and cry and to enjoy hearing these true stories of courage and enlightenment,” Fox added. “Also, it is a chance to hear in a new way what it is to be a woman in today’s society, and how women meet and transform these challenges into victories each day.”

Actor are Peggy Dart, June Englebright, Janis Jablecki, Marion Jeffrey, Sheila O’Connor, Harriet Totten, Reinette Senum and Melissa Silva. Rene Sprattling directs.

Music, art and dance are also part of the show at Nevada Theatre, 401 Broad St in Nevada City.

Admission is $25 and tickets are at the Book Seller, Harmony Books and at the door. The presentation is recommended for mature audiences.

Fox hopes tonight’s presentation will raise about $5,000 for the Silver Springs High School Foundation and Spotlight on Afghan Women.
