Showtime: The stars of the Vagina Monologues. Right, comedian Paul Foot

After the success of his first UK tour last year, Paul Foot’s new comedy show was critically acclaimed and a complete sell-out at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe.

Now Kenny Larch Is Dead comes to Preston’s 53 Degrees tonight and Salford’s Lowry arts centre tomorrow and Sunday.

Foot is a BBC New Comedy Award and Daily Telegraph Open Mic winner and latest TV and radio appearances include a third appearance on Never Mind The Buzzcocks, which was screened this week, Russell Howard’s Good News and Comedy Marathon.

Box office: 01772 893000 or www.53degrees.net.

The latest threesome of female celebrities to serve up The Vagina Monologues, includes Strictly Come Dancing and Waterloo Road’s popular performer Chelsee Healey making her stage debut in the current tour which comes to Lancaster Grand next Wednesday.

She co-stars with Coronation Street’s feisty and much loved Vicky Entwistle who played Janice Battersby for 15 years and Clare Buckfield who charmed the nation when she skated through to TV’s Dancing on Ice finals.

This cast gives voice to the chorus of lusty, outrageous, poignant, brave and thoroughly human stories that make up this unique show.

Eve Ensler, the writer and creator, has now not only established the international women’s charity V-Day, but continues to work tirelessly to end violence and abuse suffered by women everywhere.

Box office: 01524 646 95 or www.lancastergrand.co.uk.

In 2010, devoted husband Chris Larner accompanied his chronically-ill ex-wife to Switzerland’s Dignitas clinic.

He came home with an empty wheelchair and a sad but compelling story to tell.

He tells it at The Dukes in Lancaster on Wednesday night, following critically-acclaimed London and Edinburgh seasons.

With the contentious issue of assisted suicide never far from the headlines, An Instinct For Kindness explores in a candid, poignant and sometimes comic performance the profound personal implications and the wider ethical issues that surround the topic.

An Instinct For Kindness is recommended for those aged 14+, and will be performed twice in The Round at The Dukes with a post show talkback after the 2pm performance.

Box office: 01524 598500 or www.dukes-lancaster.org.
