Playwright Interview: Eve Ensler, 2012

Eve Ensler is one of America’s best known playwrights. She is the author of several plays, including Vagina Monologues, The Good Body, Here. Necessary Targets, a memoir, Insecure at Last, and co-editor of an anthology A Memory, A Monologue, a Rant and a Prayer.

Richard Wolinsky interviewed Eve Ensler in early June 2012 in the offices of Berkeley Rep, where she was preparing “Emotional Creature,” a theatrical adaptation of her book, I Am an Emotional Creature.

Since 2012, Eve Ensler has published a memoir, In the Body of the World, and in 2019 The Apology, in which she exorcised the demons left by her father’s abuse, and in wishing to no longer carry her father’s name, has invited people to call her V instead.
