If you’re a theatre lover with a social conscience and want a role in helping to end violence against women, the producer of the show, Lisa Montroy, invites you to come forth and be part of this internationally renowned and groundbreaking play. Actresses of various ages and types are required as well as all manner of stage crew and pre-production staff. While the show is obviously aimed at women and their empowerment, men are also welcome to come forward. Men’s mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, friends, coworkers and other family are all touched by the scourge of violence against women. It is a human and societal problem which both genders must act upon to end.
Each year V-Day increases awareness by focusing on a specific group of women in the world who are resisting violence with courage and vision. V-Day’s Spotlight Campaign for 2011 will be on the women and girls of Haïti. It will bring attention to the high level of violence against women and girls there, and will focus on the increased rates of sexual violence since the devastating earthquake the country suffered in January of 2010.
