Eve Ensler navigates her confrontation with cancer with the same unblinking intensity and humor she brought to other “taboo” topics. More
When this theater season in Boston and Cambridge draws to a close, I am confident that the current World Premiere of Eve Ensler's "In The Body Of The World," being presented by the A.R.T. at the Loeb, will continue to be talked about as one of the most impactful works of art. It is simply stunning in every aspect. More
Playwright/actress Eve Ensler relates how she lost her personal connection to her body early in life, and tried to get it back – through anorexia, promiscuity and (this gets a laugh) performance art. More
WBUR/The ARTery: From Cancer To The Congo — Eve Ensler Presents Her World In A Premiere At The A.R.T.
Ensler, best known for “The Vagina Monologues,” is an internationally known activist and theater artist and, for some, a feminist heroine. The pairing of artistic director Diane Paulus (who helms this production) and Ensler is a dream team of much-admired female voices in contemporary theater. More
No experience is lost on Eve Ensler. Ensler is an author and artist who has immersed herself in the cause of stopping violence against women. More
Eve Ensler returns to the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) this month with a deeply personal, one-woman show that tells how her work with women brutalized by sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo helped her overcome stage IV uterine cancer. More
How do you recover from a childhood with a father who molested you and a mother who emotionally abandoned you? Eve Ensler would be the first to tell you that it’s not an easy path forward, and she stumbled plenty along the way, but eventually she found healing through helping. Her inspiring journey ultimately led to her remarkable humanitarian work in the Congo. More
