V-Day South Lake Tahoe will host a benefit production of Eve Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues,” Friday and Saturday at Blue Angel Café.

V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions. Last year, more than 5,800 V-Day benefits were held around the world raising funds and awareness towards ending violence against women, a press release stated. The events raised more than $5 million through performances of “The Vagina Monologues,” readings from V-Day’s “A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer” and “Any One Of Us: Words From Prison” and screenings of V-Day’s documentary “Until The Violence Stops” and the PBS documentary “What I Want My Words To Do To You.” South Lake Tahoe has joined this global movement as part of the V Day 2014 Community Campaign.

The goal of the production is to raise awareness to stop violence against women and girls.

The production will take place Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. each day in the upstairs banquet room at Blue Angel Café, 1132 Ski Run Blvd. Admission costs $15 and tickets are available at Live Violence Free and Gaia-Licious. Tickets may only be purchased with cash or a check. Proceeds will benefit Tahoe Youth & Family Services, Live Violence Free, CASA and Zawadisha.
