As part of Stony Brook V Day 2014, the Center for Prevention and Outreach (CPO) is presenting a benefit production of Eve Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues,” with shows in the Charles B. Wang Center Theater on Thursday, March 6, and Friday, March 7, at 7 pm, as well as Saturday, March 8, at 12 pm. Tickets are $10 for students, $12 for faculty/staff and $14 for the community; they can be purchased from the CPO Office in the Stony Brook Union, Room 214.
V-Day is a global activist movement to benefit women and girls around the world by raising funds and awareness to end gender-based violence. Proceeds from the Stony Brook V-Day event will benefit the Wo/Men’s and Gender Resource Center and the Victims and Information Bureau of Suffolk.
The award-winning play “The Vagina Monologues” is based on V-Day founder/playwright Eve Ensler’s interviews with more than 200 women. With humor and grace the piece celebrates women’s sexuality and strength. For more than 12 years, “The Vagina Monologues” has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public.
CPO at Stony Brook offers a wide range of services to address student concerns about alcohol and other substances, relationships, gender issues and making healthy choices. The office is open Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 6 pm and Friday from 10 am to 4 pm.
