Dear Women and Hollywood,

I found this post about Vamps, Vixens and Feminists 2010, and thought i’d let you know that we are currently planning our next Vamps, Vixens and Feministst – this year it is at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds, UK – we are struggling to get the message out there so if you could plug us again, it would be amazing, or why not fly over the pond and come join us?!

Many thanks, for any more info check out our website or the Theatre webiste. It’s on 2nd March 10.30 – 17.00

Thanks women and hollywood!
