Centre play will benefit rape crisis center

Eve Ensler's Obie Award-winning play "The Vagina Monologues" will be performed by Centre College students at 8 p.m. Saturday at Weisiger Theater at Norton Center for the Arts.

The event is part of the V-Day 2004 College Campaign, and admission is a donation to the local rape crisis center taken at the door.

V-Day is a worldwide movement to stop sexual violence against women and girls and to proclaim Valentine's Day as the day to celebrate women and demand the end of abuse.


Proceeds from the benefit performance will help support the Bluegrass Rape Crisis Center's victim services programs. The center provides crisis counseling, legal advocacy, and 24-hour emergency room advocacy to victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment of all ages. The Danville office covers Boyle, Lincoln, Garrard, Mercer and Jessamine counties.
