Spellbinding, funny and almost unbearably moving…It is both a work of art and an incisive piece of cultural history.
Ms. Ensler wants to soften the ever-fraught relationship between American women and their bodies, to expose the destructive formulas that lead them to assuage their insecurities by punishing their flesh…rich in pointed, amusing details…forthrightly funny…bristling with wisecracks [and] exotically harvested snippets of wisdom.
If you know a girl, identify as a girl, used to be a girl or care about girls in general, you’ll find playwright, performer and activist Eve Ensler’s vibrant new play, Emotional Creature, to be a joyous and empowering exploration of issues facing girls around the globe today.
Rather than elegantly personifying the psychological repercussions of war, [Ensler’s] characters behave like ordinary people under extraordinary duress…Ensler’s straightforward intensity and delicate comic relief make [her characters’ plight] absorbing and moving.
Ensler has written a profound and vulnerable book, full of tenderness and strength. I was amazed by the clarity of her vision and the power of her message about the body and self. This book isn’t meant only for patients; it is meant for anyone whose life has intersected with illness—in short, for all of us.
