IPSWICH Corn Exchange is preparing to host hit show The Vagina Monologues.

Described by promoters as the ultimate girls night out, the show will be performed at the venue on Wednesday October 1.

A spokeswoman for the venue said: “Sex has never been funnier or more poignant than in this collection of highly original stories gathered by the show's dynamic creator, New Yorker, Eve Ensler.

“Ensler asked over 200 women of all ages, ethnic backgrounds and walks of life to share their most intimate secrets in 'vagina interviews' on such normally taboo topics as birth, sex, orgasms and relationships with truly revelatory results.

“Sharp and witty, the show is performed by three amazing women who appear on stage together throughout the evening.

“Some of the world's most successful women have taken part in The Vagina Monologues around the world including Kate Winslet, Glenn Close, Gillian Anderson, Whoopi Goldberg, Mel B, Sharon Osbourne, Dannii Minogue, Ruby Wax, Lisa Stansfield, Jerry Hall, Sophie Dahl, Mariella Frostrup, Honor Blackman, and Maureen Lipman.”
