On Friday, May 29, 2009, Santa Monica Bay Woman’s Club (1210 Fourth Street, Santa Monica, CA 90401) will house an exclusive one-night reading of Eve Ensler's new play, O.P.C. (Obsessive Political Correctness), a wildly funny and irreverent exploration of consumption and politics that asks, "How are we to survive as a species if we insist on destroying the world we love?"

Global Green USA and V-Day present the premier West Coast reading of Eve Ensler's new play, O.P.C. (Obsessive Political Correctness), a wildly funny and irreverent exploration of consumption and politics that asks, "How are we to survive as a species if we insist on destroying the world we love?"

The cast will include Stockard Channing; Brenda Currin; Greg Itzin; Ravi Kapoor; Analeis Lorig; Liz Mikel; Lee Pace and Andrea Riseborough.
This one night only reading is a benefit to protect women and the environment, featuring a post play discussion with Eve Ensler and Global Green USA President Matt Petersen.

Twenty-five-year old Romi Weil is worried about her carbon footprint, polar bears, holes in the ozone, wildflowers, songbirds and certain land masses to name just a few of her concerns. As a dumpster-diving-Freegan and a Harvard drop-out, she's doing just fine squatting in an abandoned tenement and not causing any harm to the environment.

But when her mother decides to run for State Senate, Romi's little green world is sent spinning off its access and she is hurled headlong into the frenzy of family, fashion and media attention. Not only is her life put under the harshest scrutiny, but her own eyes are opened and she is forced to ask herself (and everyone around her) is it possible to be too awake or care too much?
