The Vagina MonologuesDirector:
Cast: Eve Ensler
Actress, playwright, and political activist Eve Ensler was talking with a friend who was going through menopause in the 1990s when she was first struck by the way women spoke about their bodies, which she believed was a reflection of how they felt about themselves and their gender. Ensler was inspired to write a series of essays on women, their bodies, and the language they used to communicate about themselves which she adapted into a performance piece she called The Vagina Monologues. Opening at a tiny off-off-Broadway theater, The Vagina Monologues soon became a hit in New York City which spread around the world, becoming an international phenomenon. Eve Ensler re-creates her original performance of The Vagina Monologues in this video adaptation, which was produced for the premium cable network HBO.

This was a great show. I thought it would be perverted but it was done in a way that was inspirational not grotesque.
I don't care wether this paragraph of words are printed or not, never written a review in my life. All I wanted to say was I've heard about the vagina monologues about 2 years ago when it was being played in a british theatre. Tried in vain to go see it but missed them. Woke in the middle of the night 3 am, to catch it on channel 4(07.05.03) and was rivetted. Laughter, pain, and sadness all in one but so illuminated, by Eve Ensler's frankness and truth. Well done girl GO FORTH AND SPREAD THE WORD.
