Logo text reads ‘VDAY until the violence stops’

The Creative Writing department are delighted to announce that we will be putting on a special dramatic writing event in February 2018 in collaboration with V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. Our students will perform a collection of monologues called A Memory, a Monologue, a Rant and a Prayer, written by the likes of Maya Angelou, Edward Albee, Jane Fonda and other icons of literature, drama and political activism, as part of a global celebration of the 20th anniversary of V-Day and as a fund-raising event for a local charity operating in this field.

 
V-Day was founded in 1998 by Eve Ensler, the playwright, actor and activist behind The Vagina Monologues phenomenon, which The New York Times called ‘probably the most important piece of political theatre of the last decade’. Since then, V-Day events and campaigns have raised over £100m in over 200 countries in over 48 languages, benefiting 13,000 community anti-violence programs.
