The Vagina Monologues - December 2020 In Auckland
Educating and challenging the taboo at The PumpHouse Theatre
Thirteen women from diverse backgrounds share the PumpHouse Theatre stage in early December as part of a new professional production of The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler.
Initially planned as a play that was safe to rehearse and perform with social distancing, The Vagina Monologues has morphed into a full ensemble production with the full cast onstage throughout the show, supporting one another and representing how each monologue reflects a universal experience.
The stories explore issues of reproduction, vaginal care, consensual and non-consensual sexual experiences, body image, genital mutilation, menstrual periods, sex work, and everything in-between. All of the monologues are based on interviews undertaken by the author in the mid 90's.
The play is directed by actor and director Meg Andrews who describes it as a "bucket-list" play that she's always wanted to tackle.
"There is so much fear around talking about vulvas and vaginas. I wanted to direct this play to educate and inspire, empower and entertain," explains Meg.
"And working with the cast I've discovered that it takes a lot to make me feel uncomfortable or embarrassed!"
The Vagina Monologues runs from Wed 2nd December to Sunday 6th December at The PumpHouse Theatre in Takapuna.
