Eastfield Harvester Theatre Company Presents V-Day

 

(Mesquite, TX) ­– Eastfield College Department of Theater presents V-Day, a special edition of Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues, February 23-24, at 6 p.m. in the Performance Hall.

Directed by Eastfield Professor of Drama Dustina Reasons, this V-Day performance includes monologues from Ensler’s groundbreaking piece “The Vagina Monologues” (*see below) and multimedia presentations created by Eastfield students, staff and faculty. The performances are open to the public; in lieu of ticket admission, donations will be gladly accepted at the door.

V-Day's mission is simple. It demands that violence against women and girls must end. To do this, once a year, in February, March, and April, Eve allows groups around the world to produce a performance of the play, as well as other works created by V-Day, and use the proceeds for local individual projects and programs that work to end violence against women and girls, often shelters and rape crisis centers (from www.vday.org).

Proceeds from the two evening performances will go directly to a local women’s shelter.
