Women’s Worldwide Web

8th April 2011 by Martin Gibbons

Monkeywood’s current production of Once in a House on Fire will help to support Women’s Worldwide Web, an online platform that empowers women, their families and communities, through microfinance, education, mentoring and social networking. At every performance we are selling the bestselling memoir by Andrea Ashworth, on which the play is based, for £7 – with 50p from each sale going to the charity.

Hannah Lorraine Tompkins, one of the young voices on the Women’s Worldwide Web, came to see Once in a House on Fire on Sat 2 April 2011, after being present during it’s initial development.
