Fruit Trilogy, a New Trilogy of Plays by Eve, to Premiere in New York


#ThisIsV20 continues with the announcement of Fruit Trilogy, a new trilogy of plays by Eve Ensler. Abingdon Theatre Company presents the New York premiere production, directed by Mark Rosenblatt and featuring Kiersey Clemons and Ms. Liz Mikel.

Fruit Trilogy is a play that speaks to these explosive times and charts the journey of women, from the disembodiment that comes from violence to the embodiment that comes from self-love.

Presented by the Abingdon Theatre Company (Tony Speciale, Artistic Director; Denise Dickens, Producing Director) as part of its 25th Anniversary season, Fruit Trilogy is directed by Mark Rosenblatt (world premiere of Fruit Trilogy at West Yorkshire Playhouse, UK) and features Kiersey Clemons (Dope, The Only Boy Living In New York, “Transparent”) and Liz Mikel (Lysistrata Jones, “Friday Night Lights”). The New York premiere production launches a limited engagement Saturday June 2 at 8PM at the historic Lucille Lortel Theatre Theatre (121 Christopher Street, NYC) in Greenwich Village and runs through June 23. The official opening night is June 7 at 7PM.

Special discount available for V-Day activists. Code: VDAY
Tickets are currently on sale at or by calling at 212-352-3101. Limit: 4 per order. All tickets are $33 plus $2.00 facility fee (standard price is $67). The offer is good only in standard seating areas of the house, for all performances except opening night (June 7). Facility fees for online and phone orders apply.

After select performances, V-Day will host a talkback series led by activists, artists, and thinkers; participating in discussions surrounding the play’s central themes on the commodification and ownership of women’s bodies along with returning to and learning to love the body.

In this pivotal moment when women around the world have risen up to tell their stories and stand up against violence, Eve’s timely Fruit Trilogy is three short plays that give a voice to defiant, ordinary women: Pomegranate — two women for sale, another morning on the shelf; Avocado — a young woman on her chaotic, shocking journey toward freedom; and Coconut — from the bliss of her bathroom, a woman connects with the one thing she has never fully owned ... her body. Woven together with dark humor and heightened theatricality, Fruit Trilogy explores the humanity behind the headlines.
