Antipodean hosts wine and cheese followed by reading
World’s End Theater presents a reading of Eve Ensler’s landmark play celebrating female individuality, The Vagina Monologues, Saturday, June 1, at Antipodean Books, 29-31 Garrison’s Landing. A wine and cheese reception begins at 6:30 p.m., and the reading at 7:30; the reading is free, with a suggested donation of $25. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-admitted basis.
The reading features a who’s who of local female talent: familiar World’s End faces Kelsey Landon, Jenn Lee, Lisa Sabin, Christine Brooks Bokhour, Christine Wright and Nancy Sigworth are joined by Cat Guthrie, Katie Hartke, Tracey McAllistair and Kadence Neill, under the direction of Fran DiSarro.
Written in 1996, The Vagina Monologues grew out of interviews Ensler conducted with over 200 women, documenting their views on relationships, sex and violence against women. The play won the Obie for Best New Play and has been translated into 48 languages and performed in over 140 countries.
The Vagina Monologues is World’s End Theater’s final reading in the 2012-13 20th-Century Classics Reading Series, following The Little Foxes, Medea, Holidays on Ice, Crimes of the Heart, Betrayal and Curse of the Starving Class.
