On Monday 20 October, Urinetown will hold a special charity performance gala to support Water.org.
The gala will introduce a new collaboration with Water.org which aims to raise awareness about the real global water crisis that the world’s population is facing today.
Urinetown is a musical comedy set in a dystopian future where there is a water shortage is so great that peeing is a privilege. Director Jamie Lloyd said: “The best sort of theatre engages directly with the world. It may be great fun, but it should also be vital and apposite, and perhaps, instigate a broader discussion. Urinetown’s dystopian future does not have to be a prediction unless we make it so. We are delighted that the production can assist the mission of Water.org whilst keeping its audience laughing along the way”.
Water.org was co-founded by Matt Damon and aims to highlight the global water crisis. Water.org pioneers innovative, community-driven and market-based initiatives to ensure all people have access to safe water and sanitation — giving women hope, children health and communities a future.
This is set to be a fun night raising money for a great cause. To find out more visit the Urinetown Gala site.
