‘Vagina Monologues’ still relevant, shocking 20 years later

AMY COOK THEATRE AND DRAMA

An Indianapolis Star reporter recently contacted IU News and Media for help finding a source to talk about the continued relevance of Eve Ensler’s play, “The Vagina Monologues.” We linked her up with Amy Cook, associate professor of theatre history, theory and literature in IU’s Department of Theatre, Drama and Contemporary Dance, who said she often incorporates the show in her theater history class.

“Whenever I teach it, it’s amazing, watching people trying to talk about it without saying that word,” Cook told the newspaper. “I am amazed at how still weird and uncomfortable it is for women to say the word vagina and to talk about it.”
