‘Monologues’ to help aid abused women

Nevada County will join more than 650 communities around the world presenting the Obie Award-winning play “The Vagina Monologues” next week.

The play is part of the V-Day global movement to stop violence against females.

V-Day helps raise money for anti-violence organizations while drawing public attention to the fight to stop rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation and sexual slavery.

Since it was formed in 1998, V-Day has awarded about $4 million to anti-violence organizations and programs through proceeds from “The Vagina Monologues” performances, according to a V-Day press release.

Based on interviews with hundreds of women worldwide, “The Vagina Monologues” portrays the humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement found in the women’s experiences.

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

Andrea Fox is the V-Day Nevada County organizer.

The performance will be at 7 p.m. on Feb. 14 at the Nevada Theatre in Nevada City. There will also be music, art and dance performances.

Tickets are $25 at the Book Seller, Harmony Books and at the door.

Nevada Theatre is at 401 Broad St.
