Award-winning play and powerful political theater piece.

Where: Center Stage Theater, 751 Paseo Nuevo, Santa Barbara
Age limit: Not available
DIJO Productions is delighted to be bringing to the Santa Barbara stage the highly acclaimed and award-winning play The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler. This play is especially timely given its recent performance on the Statehouse steps in Lansing, MI by a state lawmaker, who was joined by the play’s author. Democratic state Rep. Lisa Brown participated in the performance along with other lawmakers and actresses after Republicans barred her from speaking in the house because she used the word “vagina” during debate over anti-abortion legislation.
Jerry Oshinsky and E. Bonnie Lewis will direct the production. The cast features E. Bonnie Lewis, Carol Metcalf, Maia Mook, and Ivy Vahanian. Kat Bruington-Garcia is the stage manager.
First produced in 1998, The Vagina Monologues has been called “probably the most important piece of political theater in the last decade” and follows DIJO’s recent productions of The Exonerated, and Frost/Nixon.
