Moray performance of ground-breaking international theatre event
A revival of an international award-winning show is planned for Elgin next Spring.
The critically acclaimed work by American playwright Eve Ensler, The Vagina Monologues, was last performed to packed houses at Elgin Town Hall in 2005 and a local group plan to revive the performance to a new audience.
A small focus group has been formed in Forres, and is on the lookout for sponsors, volunteer fundraisers and finance co-ordinators. Volunteer acting crew will be needed as the production gets underway.
The performance date is scheduled for Saturday, 16 March 2024.
Lorna Creswell – a performer in previous performances, said:
“This moving celebration of an award-winning masterpiece needs the talent that exists in Moray to bring it to life.
“We are looking for key players to initially join the focus group to help bring this project to fruition.
“Once our focus group is fully formed, we will then be casting and starting rehearsals.”
Anyone interested should contact the group by email: email@example.com
When it was first performed in New York in 1996, the New York Times described it as ‘probably the most important piece of political theatre of the last decade.’
It remains a touchstone of the feminist movement, and its non-profit performances around the world raise money for women’s charities.
The Elgin performance proceeds will be donated to the Moray Rape Crisis charity.
