All women comedy gig for OPAWC
Our favourite South London venue will host an evening of comedy in support of one of Afghanistan’s most radical and active women’s groups.
Kate Smurthwaite will perform her award winning Edinburgh show: “The News At Kate: My Professional Opinion”. Its a real honour to be welcoming her back to the Grosvenor.
Shit Theatre need no introduction as they’ve gone down an absolute storm when they’ve played here before. They’ll be performing their show “Women’s hour”.
Elf Lyons completes the line up. “Lyons needs no work on her stage presence, she’s already got that honed to a fine art [...] quirky, funny and bold – certainly one to watch”
This will be a benefit gig for the Organisation Promoting Afghan Women’s Capabilities (OPAWC) who have been empowering Afghan women since the war with the Russians in 1980s. There will be a free info night about them and their work in London on March 18th: https://www.facebook.com/events/216561981870950/217889801738168/?notif_t=like
