Directed by Diane Paulus (Waitress) and based on Ensler's critically acclaimed memoir, In the Body of the World tells the story of how, while working with women suffering from the ravages of war in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ensler was stunned by a life-threatening diagnosis. Told with her signature brand of humor, Ensler's personal journey uncovers surprising connections between her body and the earth and how illness can be both transformative and transcendent. In the Body of the World had its world premiere at the American Repertory Theater at Harvard University in May 2016.
