Nightwood announces FemCab 2010 Line-Up

This event looks to be a great night out and features some talented women I've talked about here previously on my blog, including Maude Barlow, mezzo soprano Jean Stilwell and pianist Patti Loach, choreographer Andrea Nann, and as it happens, I appear very briefly in Andrea Dorfman's 2005 documentary Sluts! (and it's not what you think! lol)

For the last 30 years, Nightwood Theatre has developed, produced and toured landmark, award-winning plays by women. Since 1983, Nightwood has presented FemCab, the only cabaret in town where politics and art come together in an irreverent, humourous and shameless celebration of women’s success!

Please join us on April 13th for our raucous salute to the extraordinary achievements of women across the globe!
