WOMEN workers across Greater Glasgow are getting the opportunity to learn about being breast aware through theatre.
Part of Breast Awareness Month (October) and back by popular demand, The Learning Curve is an hour-long play all about breast health, women's self esteem and body image.
Written, produced and performed by Women in Theatre, the play is being shown at a range of work venues across Greater Glasgow.
· Strathclyde Police Headquarters, Pitt Street, Glasgow on October 21, 2003 between 10am and 11am;
· Cambuslang Prospects, 1-15 Main Street, Cambuslang on October 21, 2003 between 2pm – 3.30pm;
· Scottish Enterprise, Atlantic Quay, Glasgow on October 22, 2003 between 2.30 and 4pm;
· The City Chambers, George Square, Glasgow (Satinwood Suite) on October 23, 2003 between 10am and 11am;
· Gilmorehill Arts Centre, 9 University Avenue, Glasgow on October 23, 2003 between 2.30 and 4pm.
There will be a discussion at the end of the performance to allow members of the audience to ask questions and representatives from Breast Cancer Care and the Breast Screening Service will also be at each venue to chat to women about breast health.
Lynne Davidson, an NHS Greater Glasgow Health Senior Promotion Officer who works with the Workplace Cancer Awareness Project, was part of the team behind bringing the play back to Greater Glasgow.
She said: "This is a superb medium to get across the messages surrounding breast health. The play is not only informative, it's also very humorous and quite emotional. It puts across a number of women's health messages in a fun and interesting way.
"It aims to break down the barriers many women have about being breast aware. It also represents the diversity of women's experience in relation to their breast health, including younger and Asian women.
"This is the third year running the play has come to Glasgow and it's always a winner with audiences."
