In this pivotal moment when women around the world have risen up to tell their stories and stand up against violence, Eve Ensler's timely Fruit Trilogy is 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; andCoconut - from the bliss of her bathroom, a woman connects with the one thing she has never fully owned ... her body. Woven together with dark humor and heightened theatricality, Fruit Trilogy explores the humanity behind the headlines.

Produced in association with Tony Montenieri, Fruit Trilogy features a scenic design by Mark Wendland (Six Degrees of Separation), Costume Design by Andrea Lauer (Bring It On, The Musical), lighting design by Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew (Company XIV's Rococo Rogue), and sound design by Matt Hubbs (Indecent).

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.
