Cheshire Cats

11/04/11 - 16/04/11

Venue: The Forum Studio Theatre

Grown women, aching feet and heaving bosoms! Follow the "Cheshire Cats" team as they aim to speedwalk their way to fund raising success in the London Moonwalk. A girls weekend away with a difference - trainers and decorated bras are in, high heels and designer labels out. But a last minute substitute to the team doesn't seem to meet the physical criteria. . . . The "Cats" put their best feet forward in this comic tribute to all those who participate in The Moonwalk and other fund raising walks up and down the country
This ensemble piece is being performed as a fund raiser for the Countess of Chester Breast Care Unit, and visitor facilities for the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital. It was a fund raising Fringe Sell Out show in Edinburgh in August 2006, with three star reviews and Claire Black of the Scotsman writing "... before you jump to the conclusion that I've been dishing out charity stars, this is in fact a genuinely funny and even touching ensemble piece....".
