The Women’s Resource Society is fighting violence through theatre.

It’s once again presenting the Vagina Monologues, for a one-time show on Saturday.

Around 20 local actresses have put in countless hours of practice in preparation for the big fundraiser.

Executive Director of the Society, Emily Goodman says while the play has been presented for more than seven years in a row, there’s always a new twist. One of the actresses is going to perform an original song, and a locally-produced ‘Vagina Warrior’ documentary is going to be presented.

The monologues are all based on true stories. The author of the play, Eve Ensler, conducted hundreds of interviews with women from all over the globe.

Goodman says while the title of the play might be a bit uncomfortable for some, the performance will delight new audiences.

All the proceeds from the play will go towards the Women’s Resource Society. Tickets are $20 each and are available through the organization, at the Cultural Centre, and at Whole Wheat and Honey.


The show will be held at the Cultural Centre on Saturday at 7 p.m.
