V-Day works to stop violence against women, children
Joining local efforts to support V-Day, a global initiative founded by playwright Eve Ensler to stop violence against women and children, Fairfield University sponsored a theatrical production of A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer. Presented in the Thomas J. Walsh Art Gallery at the Quick Center for the Arts, the dramatic collection of monologues written by diverse authors and playwrights, graphically reveal women’s struggle to live freely, safely and emotionally and spiritually healthily. Gary Lee Pelletier, a 2009 Fairfield University graduate and current resident of Brooklyn, N.Y., was asked to return to direct this year’s presentation after taking the helm of last year’s production of The Vagina Monologues.
