Hailed by The New York Times as “funny” and “poignant” and by the Daily News as “intelligent” and “courageous,” The Vagina Monologues, which was first performed off-Broadway by Ms. Ensler, dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women’s experiences. Ms. Ensler has performed the play to great acclaim throughout the world – from Zagreb to Santa Barbara, from London to Seattle, from Jerusalem to Oklahoma City.
This is the 7th annual charity performance to take place in Hong Kong. 100% of the proceeds will go to Helpers for Domestic Helpers.
Over the past past 25 years, HDH has helped over 25,000 foreign domestic workers seek justice and safety due to the working environments. They provide them with legal council, child care and living facilities to escape abusive households.
They recommend purchasing in advance for this event. Due to adult language and content, this show is restricted to ages 18 and up.
