"In The Body Of The World" Opens to Rave Reviews at A.R.T. in Cambridge, MA


Eve A.R.T. in the body of the world.jpg

In the world-premiere adaptation of her critically acclaimed memoir In The Body Of The World, Eve celebrates the strength and joy that connect a single body to the planet. As an activist and artist, Eve has spent her career speaking about the female body. While working in the Congo, where war continues to inflict devastating violence on women, she was diagnosed with stage III/IV uterine cancer. This diagnosis erased the boundaries between Ensler's work and her own body. In this raw, humorous, and bold performance staged by Diane Paulus (Finding Neverland, Crossing, Waitress), Eve charts the connections between the personal and the public, inviting and challenging all of us to come back into our bodies, and thus the world.

Theatre critics and audiences agree, the piece is moving, deeply human, artistically masterful and not to be missed.

To celebrate the sucess of the play and the story it tells, A.R.T is offering a discount code to V-Day and RISING activists for the final weekend of the show:
