'Vagina Monologues' production raises $3,000 for two regional women's shelters         

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - The Lawrence County Shelter for Victims of Abuse and the Butler County Victims Outreach Intervention Center (Butler County VOICe) will share more than $3,000 in proceeds from Slippery Rock University's Women's Studies Program performances of Eve Ensler's award-winning plan "The Vagina Monologues."

            "We are so please that our production will be able to support the important services offered by these two women's organizations in our area. Everyone who participated in the production, and those who attended, should be proud of contributing to this effort," said Jace Condravy, professor of English and director of the Women's Studies Program.

            The play, directed on campus and at the Regional Learning Alliance by Susan Kelley, an English

major from Pittsburgh, drew more than 600 to the campus performances and more than 100 to the Regional Learning Alliance production in Cranberry.

            The work deals with the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women's experiences. The original production earned the Obie Award and was called "funny" and "poignant" by The New York Times. The Daily News called it "intelligent" and "courageous."
