Cheryl King - "not a nice girl"

In 2004, two readings of "The Vagina Monologues" were presented at Where Eagles Dare Theatre, with a cast of 9, including Carol Fox Prescott. Additional events included four Warrior Shows, featuring 6-8 artists per show, plus Heather Raffo and Cheryl King's solo shows.

 

All proceeds from Heather Raffo's solo show "9 Parts of Desire" went to OWFI,

Organization for Women's Freedom in Iraq. They fund a safe house for women in Baghdad.

 

All remaining proceeds from these V-Day Event Shows went to Communities Coordinated Against Violence (CONNECT), a program designed to help New York City communities develop preventive and early intervention strategies that address violence in the family. CONNECT's goal is to provide culturally affirming and community-focused services designed to improve these organizations' ability to respond to family violence. CONNECT's approach provides a blend of capacity building, skills training, technical assistance, and community development that is focused on a particular geographic community in New York City.
