I'm not sure who posted this here, but I thought I should interject that this performance of the Vagina Monologues was cancelled. *sigh* In one way I think it is utterly stupid. But I'm actually really happy that we are writing our own "play", In the Pink. I have written and submitted a monologue and I still hope to be a part of the production. The new show will open March 8th with shows at 2:30pm and 7pm.

VAGINA MONOLOGUES DEPART SL - PRODUCERS SEE PINK!


The much talked about in-world production of Eve Ensler's "Vagina Monologues" has been suspended, for now.

Late last week, the V-Day organization rescinded permission to mount two live performances of the controversial piece in-world, due to concerns over possible breaches of international performance rights.

SL's production of the "Vagina Monologues", the first of its kind for V-Day, was to have raised funds for its campaign to end violence against women.

Despite the setback, SL Producers and cast members have rallied, unanimously deciding to present a new play to support V-Day... albeit in altered format.

"In the Pink", penned in part by women of Second Life, and incorporating an extract from the "Vagina Monologues", is currently in production. It will feature V-Day's tenth anniversary "Spotlight Monologue", a salute to the women of New Orleans.

"Clearly we're disappointed ", says Director Calliope Delgado. "But we're overwhelmed by the strong support already shown by the residents of Second Life, and our mission continues to be to raise funds for V-Day.org. V-Day has agreed that we may continue to use their logos in our production and fundraising efforts. They have also agreed that we may use "Welcome to the Wetlands" and letter from Eve Ensler in our production to promote V-day in New Orleans later this year."

"In the Pink" will celebrate the strength of women everywhere and call attention to the problem of violence against women," she said. "It will be our take on female sexuality and what it means to be a woman, in RL and SL."

Production of "In The Pink" is well underway, with performances slated for early March 2008. Information on venues and ticketing will be released soon.
