Monólogos de la vagina Santander 2015

By some reason, I’ve never seen The Vagina Monologues in English, even though some years ago the play made it as far as Saffron Walden. At last, I made up for it. Tonight’s show in Naútica was sold out. I was lucky to buy my ticket (only €5!) couple of weeks ago at Bar Bolero, c/San Celedonio, 35. All proceeds are going to the charities, Asociación Centro de Asistencia a Víctimas de Agresiones Sexuales (CAVAS) and Asociación Ciudadana Cántabra Antisida (ACCAS).

With theatre, you never know. I expected the show to be engaging and provoking. But I frankly did not expect the cast of volunteers to act so professionally. Nor did I expect me understanding almost everything they were saying. Mind you, there is a lot of serious stuff in the play, some of the monologues would make you angry, or even make you cry, but most of them were unashamedly hilarious. The final one, La mujer que amaba hacer felices a otras vaginas, was performed by Esther García-Lago, who was conducting a “choir” (the rest of the troupe) having their different types of orgasms. And of course, I did not expect to find me myself shouting Coño! from the first row of the auditorium (Reconquistando el coño). Only now I realise how long I was waiting for this moment. Orgasmafantastic.
