Korea's very own version of "The Vagina Monologues" is finally coming to the stage.
With three actresses on one stage, the so-called trialogue version of the play will star famous actresses Choi Jung-won-I, Jeon Soo-kyeong and Lee Kyeong-mi-I.
Written by Eve Ensler, an American playwright, performer and feminist, The Vagina Monologues was first staged off-Broadway in 1996. The play was based on private interviews with more than 200 women from different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Touching on the delicate subjects of sex, rape, menstruation, self-mutilation, masturbation, orgasms, childbirth and the variety of names for the vagina itself, the play's recurring theme is that the vagina is a tool of female empowerment and the ultimate embodiment of individuality.
The Vagina Monologues has been translated into over 40 different languages and performed in over 100 countries.
Now with a stellar all-Korean cast, the local version of The Vagina Monologues is set to shake up Korean notions of women.
Tickets range from 30,000 won to 40,000 won.
The show is staged at 8 p.m. on weekdays (except Mondays), 4 and 7 p.m. on Saturdays and 3 and 6 p.m. on Sundays.
