Women’s stories help charity fund

The Vagina Monologues, hailed as a celebration of female sexuality, is to be performed this week at Milton Keynes Theatre.

Eve Ensler’s smash-hit play is usually packed with audiences made up of women of all ages, from grandmothers to young adults, as they flock to hear real stories of intimacy, vulnerability and sexual self-discovery, delivered with humour and humanity.

The show will be led by one of TV’s favourite stars, Diane Keen, who recently completed a 10-year stint playing Julia Parsons on the BBC soap Doctors.

Diane will be joined by TV soap favourites, Terri Dwyer and Hollie-Jay Bowes.

Terri first hit our screens as one of the original cast of Hollyoaks, in which she played Ruth Osbourne for six years. Hollie-Jay Bowes is the youngest cast member to join the new line-up. Hollie-Jay started her TV career on Grange Hill before joining Hollyoaks as Michaela McQueen.

Eve, the writer, is now known for her tireless work to end violence and abuse suffered by women everywhere. The international women’s charity V-Day receives a portion of the ticket sales from each performance of The Vagina Monologues.

The show is on tonight at 7.30pm. To book, call the box office on 0844 8717652 or visit www.atgtickets.com/miltonkeynes. Tickets cost £21.
