Emotional Creature to Premiere at Berkeley Rep
Eve Ensler announced to a sold-out audience at Berkeley Rep Theatre on October 21 that her new play Emotional Creature will premiere at the Rep's Roda Theatre in June 2012. Emotional Creature, based on Eve's bestselling book I Am an Emotional Creature: The Secret Life of Girls, was developed in workshops in Johannesburg and Paris and inspired V-Day's newest initiative, V-Girls - a global network of girl activists empowering themselves and one another to change the world, one girl at a time. "Emotional Creature is about being a girl in the world in 2011 and about discovering the girl in each of us," says Eve. "It is about changing the verb from 'please' to 'create' or 'defy' or 'resist' or 'imagine.' Where else would we begin this in America than Berkeley, in what other theatre than Berkeley Rep, which has a gorgeous history of pushing the edge, engaging in social issues, and conjuring community."
