TWO former Hollyoaks stars have joined the cast of the 2013 Vagina Monologues UK tour, which will visit Welwyn Garden City next month.
Terri Dwyer and Hollie-Jay Bowes will both appear in the show alongside acclaimed actress Diane Keen.
The world-renowned theatrical smash comes to Welwyn Garden City’s Hawthorne Theatre on Monday, November 4.
Eve Ensler’s controversial three-hander play will provide audiences with a funny and poignant exploration of the last frontier, the ultimate forbidden zone.
The Vagina Monologues is a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery and is well known to have audiences around the globe laughing out loud one minute, and crying the next.
The appeal of the play spans generations, with theatre audiences made up of women of all ages, from grandmothers to young adults.
These are real women’s stories of intimacy, vulnerability and sexual self-discovery, delivered with passion, humour and humanity.
The 2013 cast will be led by one of TV’s favourite leading ladies, Diane Keen.
She recently completed a 10-year stint on the popular BBC soap Doctors, in which she played Julia Parsons.
Diane is also well known for her performances in The Cuckoo Waltz, Rings on Their Fingers and You Must Be The Husband.
The Vagina Monologues marks an exciting return to the stage after more than a decade away.
She will be joined by two other TV soap favourites, Terri Dwyer and Hollie-Jay Bowes.
Terri first hit our screens as one of the original cast of Hollyoaks, playing Ruth Osborne for six years.
Since then she has appeared in a number of roles, both on screen and on stage, and also forged herself a successful career as a TV presenter on UK daytime shows.
Hollie-Jay Bowes is the youngest cast member to join the new line-up. She started her TV career on children’s favourite Grange Hill before joining the Hollyoaks line-up in the role of Michaela McQueen.
The Vagina Monologues can be seen at the Hawthorne Theatre on Monday, November 4 at 7.30pm.
