V-Monologues has been around for a while now. Read a review of last year's performance here. It's here again. The Kudirat Initiative for Democracy (KIND) will put on a benefit performance of the critically acclaimed “V-monologues: the Nigerian story” throughout the month of March. The play is aimed at raising awareness about various aspects of violence women and girls face in Nigeria. This year’s version however, will have a new twist to it with the addition of monologues written and performed by men. It's called “The Ultimate Face-off: V-Monologues vs. Tarzan Monologues”
Actresses include a stellar cast of old and new champions from previous performances of the V-monologues. They include Kate Henshaw Nuttal, Stella Damascus, Carol Adoghe-King, Ireti Doyle, Kemi lala Akindoju, Ayo Adunni Orobiyi, Bimbo Emmanuel, Kenneth Uphopho Kunle Adeyoola (of Rooftop MCs), Paul Alumona and Sola Roberts Iwaotan.
Through the project, KIND has raised over N2,000,000 Naira for six organizations working with battered women, victims of vesico-vagina fistula and sexually abused children. The play begins March 7th at Terra-Kulture’s Theatre-at-Terra throughout the month of March at 3pm and 6pm.
Get ready to laugh, think and maybe cry! And of course contribute your bit for girls and women.
