'Vagina Monologues' slated for three performances to support local women's groups 

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - Slippery Rock University's Women's Studies Program will present three performances of Eve Ensler's award-winning play "The Vagina Monologues" to benefit the Lawrence County Women's Shelter and the Butler County VOICe program.

           Performances, directed by Susan Kelley, an English major from Pittsburgh, are planned for 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday in the Advanced Technology and Science Hall Auditorium, and 7 p.m. Saturday at the Regional Learning Alliance, Cranberry.

           Tickets for the campus performance are $3 for students, $5 general public; and $7 for students, $10 general public for the Cranberry reception and performance.

           The play, which has been a sell-out in previous SRU presentations, earned the Obie Award and was called "funny" and "poignant" by The New York Times. The Daily News called it "intelligent" and "courageous."

           The work deals with the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women's  experiences.

Slippery Rock University is Pennsylvania's premier public residential university. Slippery Rock University provides students with a comprehensive learning experience that intentionally combines academic instruction with enhanced educational and learning opportunities that make a positive difference in their lives.
