The Good Body

Just in time for swimsuit season! In this riotous contemplation, Ensler, author of the international sensation The Vagina Monologues and the best-selling memoir In the Body of the World, examines the complex relationship between women’s minds and bodies as they struggle to fit into society’s narrow definition of beauty. Using the voices of women from across a variety of cultures and ages, the playwright encourages each of us to love ourselves and embrace our own "good body.”  


When: Friday, July 15 through Saturday, July 30 (Thursdays at 7:30pm, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 1pm) 

Where: Club Cafe in Boston,  209 Columbus Ave.  >> Read More
