Guam - Last week's showing of Eve Ensler's Vagina Monologues was a hit, and segues into a local version of the show at the University of Guam. I Famalao'an Ni Manmesgngon ("The Women Who Endure") opens tonight and continues Friday and Saturday.

Victoria-Lola Leon Guerrero spearheaded the writing workshop for the show, and said, "I think what's very powerful about this production is that while the Vagina Monologues is its own powerful display of women's stories it's also important to celebrate and honor the stories of our place. It's exciting that something that has been performed around the world like Vagina Monologues can come to Guam, but then can inspire us to do our own thing."  

Prior to the show, there will be a presentation of a short play written by UOG instructor Diane Isis Thurber entitled "Noh Way", which was inspired by Japanese Noh theater and explores the lives of five local teenage girls. Noh Way starts at 7pm. and I Famalao'an Ni Manmesngon starts at 8pm.

Tickets will be on sale at the door for $10 at the UOG Fine Arts Theater.
