The Vagina Monologues - Feb 14th, 19th & 20th - Tickets on Sale Now!

Gainesville’s Benefit Production of The Vagina Monologues has opened ticket and t-shirt sales for the 2016 shows on February 14th, 19th, & 20thEve Ensler shook foundations and language when she created The Vagina Monologues, a legacy of over 200 voices and stories that over the years have helped so many women claim or reclaim their own skin.

The Gainesville producers have enhanced the experience by cultivating a space for the voices of transwomen and additional performances focused on topics such as abortion and rape.  We hope you can join us at the Hippodrome for solidarity and celebration. Each show will open with a local art exhibit and your ticket includes a complimentary drink and hors d’oeuvres.

If you're looking for community to help you heal, think about joining us at the Wild Iris Project which was recently launched to create a space for victims and survivors of sexual assault and partner violence to come together for social gatherings and educational workshops.  More fluid than a support group, there are plans to incorporate art, outdoor activities, videos, crafts, music and more - the group currently meets the first Monday of every month at 6pm at Wild Iris. For more information contact The Wild Iris Project or Alachua County Victim Services.

Keeping with the spirit of V-Day and the cause of protecting all women from violence, proceeds from the show benefit local organizations contributing to intersectional feminist issues.  This year we are proud to work with closely with them and announce that in addition to Peaceful Paths, Wild Iris Books will receive a portion of the proceeds to continue our feminist work in the community.

"I was worried about vaginas. I was worried about what we think about vaginas, and even more worried that we don't think about them. . . . So I decided to talk to women about their vaginas, to do vagina interviews, which became vagina monologues. I talked with over two hundred women.

"Girls cry 'rape' when it's nothing more than regret over bad sex . . ." "Such emotionally charged false accusations have convinced much of the general public and the media that acquaintance rape is a figment of the imagination.


Rosa Parks was often described as a sweet and reticent elderly woman whose tired feet caused her to defy segregation on Montgomery's city buses, and whose supposedly solitary, spontaneous act sparked the 1955 bus boycott that gave birth to the civil rights movement.
