FSU to Present "The Vagina Monologues"
02/19/2002

As part of the V-Day 2002 College Campaign, "The Vagina Monologues" will be presented at Frostburg State University on March 5 and 6 at 8 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center's Drama Theatre.

The Obie Award-winning play by Eve Ensler dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women's experience. Based on interviews with a diverse group of hundreds of women - from a Long Island antiques dealer to a Bosnian refugee - "The Vaginia Monologues" brazenly explores questions often pondered but seldom asked.

Called "a bona fide phenomenon" by the New York Times, the play has received acclaim throughout the world. Villard Books/Random House published "The Vagina Monologues" with a forward by Gloria Steinem in February, 1998. A special V-Day edition, including new sections about the College Campaign, was released in February, 2001, with sold-out shows in New York featuring 70 of the most notable women of stage and screen.

V-Day is a global movement to stop violence against women and girls, with 800 benefits scheduled around the world for 2002. All proceeds from FSU's production of "The Vagina Monologues" will benefit the Cumberland's Family Crisis Resource Center, Garrett County's Dove Center and the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA). V-Day FSU 2002 is sponsored by FSU's Women's Studies program.

An Information Festival is scheduled at 7 p.m. before each show, and features the opening of the "Clothesline Project," a display featuring t-shirts bearing messages about violence against women. Attendees may also contribute to a raffle by bringing in a donation item from wish lists created by the beneficiaries. Information regarding items for the wish lists is available upon request.

Tickets for the play are $5 for students and $10 for non-students, and may be reserved by calling (301) 687-7462. For more information, contact Nicole Mattis at (301) 687-3212.

FSU is committed to making all of its programs, services and activities accessible to persons with disabilities. You may request accommodations through the ADA Compliance Office, (301) 687-4102, TDD (301) 687-7955.
