Ellensburg Theater Company presents the final shows of “The Vagina Monologues” by Eve Ensler.

The weekend includes a special Thursday, Aug. 23, show along with the regular Friday and Saturday, Aug. 24 and 25, shows at 7:30 p.m. The final show is at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 26, at the Rogue Playhouse at 94196 Moore St. in Gold Beach.

Those cast members who have seen this production before say they’re “glad to be bringing some awareness for and giving voices to these women.” They encourage the audience to “laugh with us, cry with us, ponder with us and be present with us for conversations and topics not often brought out of the closet.”

One actress considers this “a piece that is so powerful while remaining raw and matriarchal.” Another “saw the Monologues in the ’90s in Portland and felt it was funny, poignant, powerful … and provocative” … and “time to resurrect this amazing piece of theater.” She hopes “this show moves you the way it impacted me over 20 years ago.”

The play includes adult language and content.

Tickets are $12 and available at Gold Beach Books, The Coffee Dock and at the door. For reservations, call 541-247-4382.
