Ensler's Fruit Trilogy stars Kiersey Clemons and Liz Mikel in 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.

Produced in association with Tony Montenieri, Fruit Trilogy features scenic design by Mark Wendland, costume design by Andrea Lauer, lighting design by Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew, and sound design by Matt Hubbs.

After select performances, V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against all women and girls founded by Ensler, will host a talkback series. The series will be 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.
