The Vagina Monologues

Category: Non-Equity Audition
Pay: No Pay

Description:
The Vagina Monologues is an award-winning play based on V-Day Founder, playwright, performer and activist Eve Ensler's interviews with more than 200 people with vaginas. With humor and grace the piece celebrates sexuality and strength. Through the play, and the liberation of this one word, countless people with vaginas throughout the world have taken control of their bodies and their lives. For more than 20 years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public, and calls upon us to continue to fight for equal rights and legal recognition across the world.

We are seeking an intimate ensemble ages 18+ to portray people with vaginas. This is a non-Equity production; no pay. True to the essential nature of the show, this production will be in a staged reading format, however, performers will be encouraged to be off-book as much as possible. This format will be discussed further at rehearsal.

You have two options to audition for our show: by attending a live virtual audition on February 1, or submitting a video by January 31.
