Alley Repertory Theater Presents: THE GOOD BODY by Eve Ensler
Alley Repertory Theater
â€" The Resident Theater Company of Visual Arts Collective â€"
"The Good Body"
A play by Eve Ensler

BOISE â€" Alley Repertory Theater (ART) brings the fierce, quirky, and stunningly honest work of Eve Ensler to Boise this October. Written in 2004, "The Good Body" is a four-woman play that follows a similar format as Ensler's Obie Award winning "The Vagina Monologues", but with more personal interaction between characters. Rather than presenting the difficult topic of women's body issues in the powerful, singular platform of a series of provocative monologues, "The Good Body" draws its strength through a more intimate, personal discussion between women and the bodies they struggle to inhabit. As Ensler says of the play, "'The Good Body' began with me and my particular obsession with my 'imperfect' stomach."

Through the careful development of a seemingly superficial premise, Ensler delivers a thoughtful, personal, and self-reflective work that may have begun with Ensler's stomach, but kaleidoscopes out into colorful and difficult dialogue between Ensler and women from Los Angeles to Afghanistan, facing their own bodily demons in ways that vary from drastic surgery to sneaking ice cream, and ends with a quiet invitation to acknowledge and embrace "the good body" in us all.

Alley Repertory Theater and company Artistic Director, Buffie Main, are proud to present the hit play "The Good Body" and invite the Treasure Valley to experience the critically acclaimed work of Eve Ensler. The show will feature four of Boise's finest resident actors: Julia Pachraoud Bennet, Liberty Leeds, Kaite Preston, and Nancy Suiter.
