Censored theater ad stirs debate in Ashland

Email News Alerts

The word “vagina” in the title of a StageNorth theater production that opens this week is mostly obscured beneath five X’s — at least in the advertisement that ran in Monday’s Ashland Daily Press.


It’s a doctored version of the title of the popular Eve Ensler play “The Vagina Monologues,” which runs at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and includes a 2 p.m. performance on Sunday at the theater in Washburn.
