The Vagina Monologues, a play based on the original Vagina Interviews by Eve Ensler will once again be performed at Lancaster.
The venue and date are yet to be confirmed, although it is likely to be on a February weekend close to Valentine’s Day. Casting is in its early stages and students are being encouraged to audition for roles in the play. Auditions held on Thursday and Saturday of Week Seven.
The Vagina Monologues are a series of scenes which deal with issues raised by women’s sexuality. The mixture of light-hearted and intense topics are dealt with using sensitivity and support, one of the reasons why the play has become so popular. Pete Macmillan, LUSU Vice President (Equality, Welfare and Diversity) commented that at Lancaster the play has become a massive success over the years for its touching yet serious nature. He believes that the play is close to people’s hearts as it supports the global movement V-Day, an anti-violence organisation that focuses on eliminating the abuse that some women across the world have to face.
