TMI Project Tribute to Eve Ensler

Eve Ensler is a playwright, performer, activist, and the creator of "The Vagina Monologues," an episodic play in which each monologue deals with an unspoken aspect of the feminine experience. Ensler and "The Vagina Monologues" are the inspiration behind TMI Project, a local nonprofit that offers memoir-writing workshops that are shaped into performance monologs. "TMI Project is a direct result of my experience with 'The Vagina Monologues,'" says Eva Tenuto, TMI Project Co­Founder and Executive Director. TMI's Community Outreach Initiative specifically partners with local organizations and schools to offer workshops to populations whose stories often go unheard—the incarcerated, the homeless, at-risk teens, cancer patients, survivors of domestic violence, drug abusers, and military veterans. On September 17, at 7:30pm, these individuals will share their work-shopped monologues as part of the "Voices in Action: Community Outreach Showcase" fundraiser at BSP Kingston. After the show, a reception and champagne toast with Eve Ensler, TMI Project staff, and the performers will take place.
