Valentines Day – Feb. 14th
V‑DAY Castlegar JOINS ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE CAMPAIGN
Presents A Benefit Reading of
THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES
The Columbia Phoenix Players
Join us as we Demand Justice for Women and Girl Survivors of Violence.
The Columbia Phoenix players will be preforming the Vagina Monologues in Trail, Castlegar and Rossland at the end of February. The cast is made up of performers from Fruitvale, Trail, Rossland, Castlegar, Robson and all points between. Their performance is part of a worldwide campaign to raise awareness about violence against women and promote support and justice for survivors. All the profits from the performances will go towards programs at FAIR Trail and Castelgar & District Community Services to support vulnerable women and survivors of violence.
Last year over 5,800 V-Day benefits were held around the world raising funds and awareness towards ending violence against women. These highly successful events raised over $5 million through performance of The Vagina Monologues, readings from V-Day’s A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer and Any One Of Us: Words From Prison and screenings of V-Day’s documentary Until The Violence Stops and the PBS documentary What I Want My Words To Do To You. Ms. Eve Ensler’s play has been performed to great acclaim throughout the world – from Zagreb to Santa Barbara, from London to Seattle, from Jerusalem to Oklahoma City.
Come out and enjoy this provocative, moving, and humorous performance in the Kootenays .
