“It’s a totally ridiculous, completely unsexy word. If you use it during sex, trying to be politically correct –
“Darling, could you stroke my vagina?”
– you kill the act right there. I’m worried about vaginas, what we call them and don’t call them.”
The Vagina Monologues, Eve Ensler
“Probably the most important piece of political theatre of the last decade.”
The New York Times, Charles Isherwood
The Vagina Monologues is a series of episodes written by Eve Ensler about women’s experiences: sex,abuse, love, birth. Since its debut in 1996, it has been performed in over 140 countries with critical acclaim, featuring famous actresses such as Meryl Streep and Oprah Winfrey. Benefits from TheVagina Monologues, along with the V-Day movement, have raised over US$100 million for anti-violence against women organisations.
Celebrating the spirit of women’s empowerment, we are bringing you our very own production of The Vagina Monologues at HKU. Join us in a brilliant, hilarious, turbulent, and at times outrageousnight at Rayson Huang Theatre, where our actresses representing various female identities will inspire and expand your insights about womanhood and sexuality.
