Eve Opens In The Body of The World on 6 February
Christine Schuler Deschryver of City of Joy Featured During “Beyond The Stage” Talkbacks (13, 15, 16 & 17 February)
In the Body of the World, a powerful new play based on Eve’s critically acclaimed memoir opens at Manhattan Theatre Club (MTC’s Stage I at NY City Center) on 6 February. Currently in previews, the play chronicles Eve’s experiences while working with women suffering from the ravages of war in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the stunning life-threatening diagnosis she receives in the throes of this work. Told with humor and grit, Eve’s personal journey uncovers surprising connections between her body and the earth and how illness can be both transformative and transcendent. Directing this bold, unflinching and inspiring piece is Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin). In the Body of the World is an American Repertory Theater production.
Some performances will feature talkbacks with guest speakers to go ‘beyond the stage’ and further explore the subject matter. Speakers include Christine Schuler Deschryver (13, 15, 16 & 17 Feb), Eve herself (22 Feb), James Lecesne (27 Feb) and Cynthia Nixon (1 Mar), along with a range of artists, medical professionals, scholars and activists.
