Based on V-Day founder Eve Ensler's Obie award winning play, The Vagina Monologues explores and celebrates women's sexuality - its delights, pains, actualities, and vulnerabilities. Through intriguing testimonies from real women all around the world, the show has developed into a wonderful phenomenon that peers into women's fantasies and fears.
"Three nights of humor and pathos brought to MIT by students, alumnae, and staff, The Vagina Monologues debuted at the Institute in 2002, making this our twelfth annual production. MIT is proud to be one of a thousand participating colleges and universities staging benefit shows through the V-Day worldwide movement to end violence against women. Please see the V-Day Website at www.vday.org for more information about the international campaign."

How to get there: About a 8-10 min walk from Kendal or Central Sq T (Red Line). Parking is hard but if you are lucky, you may find a spot along Mass Ave. or Main Street between Central Sq and MIT (Due to snow leftovers, street parking is even more limited).
----Post event meetup round table - just outside the auditorium (we do not need to go anywhere.)
After the show, please join us our own reception for a chat at one of the tables right outside the auditorium in the same building. I will bring some soft drinks, cups, and cookies/nuts and put them on the table with a meetup sign. (Alcoholic beverages/wine/beer are not suitable for the place unfortunately.)
You may bring a bit of your favorite something to share if you would like to join in conversation for 30 min. or so.
