Stop fixing your bodies and start fixing the world!― Eve Ensler
Hub Theatre Company of Boston will continue its critically acclaimed fourth season with The Good Body by Tony Award winning playwright Eve Ensler at Club Cafe, Friday, July 15 through Saturday, July 30, 2016.
In the show The New York Times describes as “bristling with wisecracks and wisdom,” Eve Ensler- author of the international sensation The Vagina Monologues– takes an inside look at our outsides. From botox to bikinis and everything in between, this play explores the all too familiar body image battle females from middle school through menopause face on a daily basis. This provocative, hilarious, and profoundly moving show promises to leave you laughing and feeling beautiful-inside and out.
Local favorite Lindsay Eagle directs some of Boston’s finest actresses, including Julia Alvarez, Lauren Elias, W Laurie Ewer, Paola M. Ferrer, Sanaa Kazi, Sally Nutt and Regine Vital in this frank and funny show. Profoundly satisfying, The Good Body will leave you hungry for a good meal and great conversation.
Eve Ensler is the Tony Award wining author, actress, and activist best known for her Obie Award winning play The Vagina Monologues which has been performed in more than 148 countries worldwide. Ensler most recently starred in In the Body of the World, a world premiere adaptation of her acclaimed memoir of the same title, commissioned by the American Repertory Theatre and directed by Diane Paulus. Her other plays include Necessary Targets, O.P.C. and The Fruit Trilogy. Ensler was a consultant for the Academy Award nominated film Mad Max: Fury Road and has written many magazine articles and books, including The New York Times bestseller I Am Am Emotional Creature. In 1998 Ensler founded V-Day, a global campaign to eliminate violence against girls and women, and in 2013 ONE BILLION RISING, an international movement addressing gender, racial, economic and climate injustice. She was named one of Newsweek’s “150 Women Who Changed the World” and The Guardian’s “100 Most Influential Women.”
Hub Theater Company of Boston was founded in 2012 to foster creativity among Boston’s emerging theatre artists and as a means to help break down barriers between audience and art. As such, all tickets to all performances are Pay-What-You-Can. Also, donations of toiletries and personal care items will be collected at each show for local women’s shelters.
