"Everyone I have spoken to was completely smitten with the performances. There were people who chose to come back to see you perform a second time because they were so moved. I am confident that your three day visit has planted seeds that will firmly take root and inspire people in this community to rethink their responsibility in tackling many of the social issues your group address in your performance. Several groups have already talked about the desire to have you come back.

On a personal note I was deeply moved by each person's ability to demonstrate the power of healing our emotional wounds both individually and collectively through speaking one's truth in a heart centered and non judgmental way. It was nothing short of beautiful. I believe that over the course of the three nights you were here many people were given a gift of healing that will change their lives forever if only through shifts in they way they perceive themselves and others."

Tracey Hartnett BHSc RSW, Coordinator
Domestic Violence Offender Treatment Program

As an organizer of the Vagina Monologues, a survivor, and someone committed to a cause, I am in love with the idea of the MENding Monologues! It is already a wonderful thing to get so many women, including survivors to stand up and talk about this issue and fight for it, but to get men really thinking about it, is so unselfish and admirable and a true step in stopping it that it makes my heart skip a beat at the thought of showing your play and hopefully inspiring more men to think the way you do. Thank you for this, and I hope that it spreads like a wildfire, just as VagMo has!



"Hearing men’s views and stories, was refreshing, even in their own darkness. I have my own story. Knowing you're not alone helps more than any one person or words could ever describe. I knew the few dollars I spent to attend was to help truly victimized women, but after leaving, I realized it was well spent on myself, as well. I'm unbelievably thankful for the awareness this work offers. Everyone that is and has been a part of it, represent a hope and encouragement."

Christina K.


"I wanted to thank you for the extraordinary experience of being at your performance last night. I was deeply touched by all the stories and everyone in the cast. So many tears and so much laughter all at once. I salute the great courage of all of you to expose and share your stories and your healing. I felt you expressed the very essence of theatre where in presenting the story the healing can happen both in the watcher and the watched, both the performers and the audience."

Jesse S.

"I just wanted to say that I LOVED the MENding Project the other night. That was so cool how many people came! Everyone loved it. It just kept getting better and better. So glad you are doing this! You really stepped up, it's awesome!"

Lori R.

"I wasn't kidding the other night, after the performance, when I said "there are no words. I am actually stumbling for words here because they don't seem adequate enough. Some of the pieces just struck a very deep cord in me and brought even more to surface of some of the things I am dealing with. I thank you."
