A groundbreaking collection of monologues by world-renowned authors and playwrights, edited by Eve Ensler and Mollie Doyle. These diverse voices rise up in a collective roar to break open, expose, and examine the insidiousness of violence at all levels: brutality, neglect, a punch, even a put-down.
This is the second production and collaboration V-Day Belmont has done with the Haley House Bakery Café. In August 2017, with a cast that represented both Haley House and Belmont, two very diverse communities, "The Vagina Monologues" was performed to a standing room only audience on both nights. Such enthusiasm encouraged us to produce MMRP and include men from both Haley House Bakery Café and V-Day Belmont in December 2017.
90% of proceeds from ticket sales will go towards Boston's own New Beginnings Reentry Services, Inc., which supports formerly incarcerated women to successfully navigate the complex challenges of reentering their communities. 10% will go towards V-Day's Spotlight Campaign: The Resistance.
