The loop is often to be heard moaning about the lack of theatre in Macc (MADS etc aside) so is delighted to hear about an innovative Macc production and one which highlights such a significant worthwhile local cause.The author of the Vagina Monologues, Eve Ensler has interviewed women from all walks of life and all ages and compiled them into this extraordinary montage of various real women’s experiences.

V-Day is a global movement aimed at ending violence against women, and the profits from this performance will be going to Macclesfield Womens' Aid, who help women and children escape abusive home situations. Hence they want ordinary local women, and ideally those who feel strongly about the cause (such as those who have encountered abuse or are close to someone who has). Acting experience is nothing compared to passion in these productions! But remember this is not an absolute prerequisite.

They are also keen to find a venue for their final production next February so if you have a spacious hall / performance space and would like to support this important cause please contact them.
