Benefit performance of The Vagina Monologues

  • The People's Building 9995 E Colfax Ave Aurora, CO 80010 USA (map)

In an artistic response to the current political climate, It Grows Wild, a theatre company is pleased to present their inaugural production, The Vagina Monologues, by Eve Ensler.

An Obie Award-winning whirlwind tour of a forbidden zone, THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES introduces a wildly divergent gathering of female voices, including a six-year-old girl, a septuagenarian New Yorker, a vagina workshop participant, a woman who witnesses the birth of her granddaughter, and a feminist happy to have found a man who "liked to look at it."

The purpose of this production is to give a voice to the hundreds of women in our community who have been triggered, frustrated, infuriated, and affected by the recent current events. We want to represent all women in our community. We want to talk about sexual assault from our point of view. We want to praise the power of women. Our ability to thrive, give birth, laugh, and love. We want to celebrate our legacy. We want to take back what is rightfully ours: Our Experience. Our Bodies. Our Rights. Our Voice.

This is a BENEFIT PRODUCTION for the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault. Learn more about their mission at
