AWARD-WINNING play The Vagina Monologues is performed at the Heart of Hawick tomorrow night as part of Scottish Borders Council’s 16 Days of Action.

Money raised from the performance by The Tingling Wilmas will go towards V-Campaign - the global movement to end violence towards women and girls - and Children 1st in Selkirk.

The play is based on V-Day founder Eve Ensler’s interviews with more than 200 women.

A show spokesman said: “With humour and grace the piece celebrates women’s sexuality and strength.

“Through this play and the liberation of this one word, countless women throughout the world have taken control of their bodies and their lives.” And she added: “For more than 12 years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public.”

The show is suitable for ages 16 and over, and starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced at £7.50 - to book phone 01450 360688.
