The Vagina Monologues

by

Eve Ensler

SYNOPSIS

Eve Ensler is an award-winning playwright, poet, activist, and screenwriter. Her many works for the stage include The Depot, Floating Rhoda and the Glue Man, Extraordinary Measures, Ladies, Scooncat and Lemonade.

Her play Necessary Targets has had benefit performances on Broadway and at the National Theatre in Sarajevo. The Vagina Monologues won a 1997 Obie Award and was nominated for Drama Desk and Helen Hayes awards. The world tour of The Vagina Monologues initiated V-Day, a global movement to stop violence against women.

Ensler is currently writing a screenplay on women in prison for Glenn Close.

"I am not sure why I was chosen," Eve Ensler says, "I didn't for example, have girlhood fantasies about beco-ming "vagina lady" (which I am often called, sometimes loudly across a crowded shoe store.) I could not have imagined that I would one day be tal-king about vaginas on talk shows in places like Athens, Greece, chanting the word vagina with 4000 women in Baltimore, or having 32 public orgasms a night. These things were not in my plans. In this sense, I don't think I had much to do with The Vagina Monologues.
It possessed me."
