 WESTMINSTER, Md. – McDaniel College students perform Eve Ensler’s celebrated play, “The Vagina Monologues,” on Friday, Feb. 3, and Saturday, Feb. 4, at 7:30 p.m. in WMC Alumni Hall at McDaniel College, 2 College Hill, Westminster, Md.

“The Vagina Monologues” is an award-winning play based on playwright Eve Ensler’s interviews with more than 200 women. With humor and grace, the piece celebrates women’s sexuality and strength. The performance is in association with V-Day, a global movement to stop violence against women and girls (www.vday.org).

McDaniel’s “The Vagina Monologues” is directed by senior Jennifer Shillingburg of Oakland, Md., and includes English professor Becky Carpenter and McDaniel students.

Shillingburg said, “The Vagina Monologues is one of the most fun, hilarious, inspirational and powerful pieces I’ve been involved in here at McDaniel, and that doesn’t change year to year. It’s helped me become a better woman and a stronger force for change in the world, and I’d love to share that with as many people as possible, so definitely put it on your calendars!”
