V-Day 2009 Beneficiaries

We have chosen this diverse group to highlight the pervasive and insidious nature of violence against women, which affects each of our lives, regardless of gender.

this is your director speaking 😉
Wow — well after the great snows of 2009 locked us all in the house yesterday I actually got some work done and have five minutes this morПing to update you all on the fast approaching 2009 VDAY !
A Memory A Monologue A Rant and A Prayer takes to the stage on the 17 th Feb 2009 and The Vagina Monologues on the 20th Feb 2009.
We are in intensive rehearsals now at The New Players and the shows are coming together nicely. Everything is so exciting — we have a fantastic crew and cast — what a huge team of committed people — it’s incredible. There’s a gorgeous set design which I hope will impress all too.
But firstly, we’ll be celebrating V-Day in style — we have two great events taking place on the 14 th February, raising awareness, raising money and having a good time.
The V-Day Love Run — more info on our facebook page — do come along and cheer our fabulous runners to the finish line, and if you can’t make it you can sponsor them at our justgiving page.
Victory Valentine Vagina
V-Day celebrates Valentines Day at the Double Club — again more info at our FB event page.
Hope to see you at one of these and if not — see you at the shows — tickets are selling rather well actually — so do get yours soon 🙂
