Last night, Hopper and I had a chance to go and see one of our new roommates perform in Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues. I had never seen the play and I was glad to have a reason to go and do so. It's one of those plays that everyone should go and see simply to be culturally aware. The show was put on at a modest but not unpleasant stage in San Francisco State University's Knuth Hall. We had been warned in advance that the show would be sold out so I purchased tickets online earlier. It was not hard to find as there were signs outside and a series of lips inside the theater leading to the right stage. Across the hall there were a variety of booths set up representing a variety of groups related to sexual health or women. On the way in, we handed our tickets to an usher. "You are #5 so you get a ribbon," the usher told Hopper as she handed her a red ribbon pin. Door prize? "This is to represent the one in five women who are raped in this country." The auditorium seats were fairly level and it was hard to see from further back so we found seats near the front. Before the show began, volunteers went around selling lottery tickets for door prizes, which included "vagina pops," lubricants, condoms, and some related items. The show was being put on as a fundraiser for several nonprofits benefiting women's and sexual health causes in the U.S. and abroad.
