Who like Vaginas?- Mada

Sooo as you may have noticed, I forgot to post last night. And I was doing so well...

Anyway, the reason is because I am currently in tech week for The Vagina Monologues. I tried out without really knowing what The Vagina Monologues were because my friend Sara was trying out and I'm a mindless conformist. Now that I am in it I absolutely love it and I think that everybody who can should come to a performance this weekend.

Friday the 11th- 7:30 pm
Saturday the 12th- 7:30 pm
Sunday the 13th- 2 pm

The Vagina Monologues were written in 1996 by Eve Ensler, a very active feminist. The show is a collection of monologues that are all about vaginas. Shocker. Some of them are really funny, some are really sad, some are quite graphic and most of them are really fucking weird. I am actually in the intro so I will not actually be doing a monologue but my part is pretty funny anyway. All the proceeds of the play go to the V-Day fund which is a charity organization to help women in need. This year the money is going to fight violence against women in Haiti.

Like I said, y'all should come. There is a link to the facebook page here. The shows are going to be at Gregory Hall which is on the south-west corner of U of I's quad in room 112. Check it out.
