Vagina Monologues return Feb. 20

Art Matters Society is producing a community version of Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues in Port Alberni later this month.

Art Matters Society is producing a community version of Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues for a fourth time in Port Alberni later this month.

Gwynne Hunt of Art Matters has been running auditions for the Monologues—a show her society has produced for 20 years between the Lower Mainland and the Alberni Valley.

“It is an empowering and special show that brings women together,” producer Gwynne Hunt wrote in Art Link, an Alberni Valley arts magazine she produces.

“I have produced and directed over 20 shows and am always amazed at what a powerful experience it is.”

Art Matters Society has raised more than $77,000 in the last 10 years, mostly on the mainland, she said, but for the past three years has donated to the Alberni Community and Women’s Services Society. ACAWS will again benefit from proceeds from this year’s production.

The 2016 version of The Vagina Monologues will debut on Saturday, Feb. 20 at 8 p.m. at Char’s Landing. Tickets are $15 at the Main Artery at Harbour Quay or at the door at Char’s.

The Monologues will also be part of the International Women’s Day Celebration of Wise Women at the Italian Hall March 5.
