The EmilyAnn Theatre in Wimberley, Texas Presents Necessary Targets, A Benefit for Compassionate Touch in Bosnia
Priya Hudson and Diane Hruska

Friday, March 31st, Saturday, April 1st, and Sunday, April 2nd, 2006. All performances begin at 7:30 PM at the EmilyAnn Theatre in WImberley. (Mature audiences only.)
The EmilyAnn Theatre presents Necessary Targets, a play by Eve Ensler focusing on the stories of five Bosnian women who survived the war in the former Yugoslavia. Powerful scenes in a Bosnian refugee camp offer insights into the reality of war as it affects women.

These performances feature the cast who opened the run of Necessary Targets in Santa Fe at the Santa Fe Playhouse, the oldest theatre in New Mexico, on March 11th to rave reviews. They now bring it home to Wimberley, where audiences will be transfixed by this powerful play.

Proceeds support the work of Compassionate Touch in Bosnia. Compassionate Touch is presently working in the United States and Bosnia, developing and implement culturally-sensitive, touch-centered education and healing programs for children, teens and adults, as well as providing community-based trainings for educators and health-care workers.
For reservations call 512-847-6969.

The audience is invited to a reception following the performance to meet and greet the cast.
