PRESS RELEASE

The Vagina Monologues has become a world-wide phenomenon. This award-winning play by Eve Ensler has been staged all over the world, often with celebrity monologists. In 1998, Ensler launched V-Day, a global non profit project that has raised over $60 million for women's anti-violence groups through fund-raising performances.

The Monologues are read by a varying number of women. Each one relates to the vagina. Every year a new monologue is added to highlight a current issue affecting women around the world. This year’s spotlight focuses on the Democratic Republic of Congo, where rape is being used as a systematic weapon of war. This is a play which uses dialogue about the vagina in its many uses, and facets, from sexual to reproductive, from pleasurable to abusive. It calls both men and women to protect our sisters/mothers/daughters/girlfriends/wives/friends from violence.

Red Sandstone Varied Productions (http://rsvp.blog.com/) will produce The Vagina Monologues, directed by Kinsale woman, Yvonne Coughlan, in three venues in Cork and The White Lady, in Kinsale, during April 2009, with a Grand Finale on the top floor of County Hall. This is a non-profit community event organised by Cork woman, Gráinne O’Driscoll, and featuring 19 women living in Cork city and county, which will raise funds for organisations supporting women in violent situations.

The vision for this production, says director Yvonne, is:
_To promote the joy of being a woman as we show the true cost of violence against women.
_To highlight the injustices women suffer, but not to portray them as victims.
_To showcase the beautiful, intelligent, stylish, sexy, powerful, emotive, multi-talented and multi-faceted women of our community, and so of the world at large.
_To welcome men and women equally to this event, which serves to protect us all from violence, and raise awareness and funds for these issues at home, and in the world community.
_To generate love, laughter, friendship and discussion, and share this with an audience.
_To impassion people so that they go on to find ways to stop the violence all women around the world.

90% of proceeds from this fundraising event will go to local charities which aid Cork women and girls, who suffer violence, Domestic Violence Centre, Sexual violence Centre, YANA (You are not Alone), Mna Feasa with 10% donated to aid women in the Congo (DRC). http://newsite.vday.org/drcongo
