IDENTITIES, the breast cancer focused boob play created by Warrington creative Rae Bell, is looking to return to a stage near you.

The play opened to rave reviews in a limited run last year, but a fundraiser to bring the play back for a wider tour is reaching its final days.

It focuses on telling the life of a woman who contracts Breast Cancer via the perspective of her boobs, with Rae playing one of the two person cast alongside Hannah Harquart, who play right and left boob respectively.

Rae, who is an alumni of Lymm High School and Sir John Deane Sixth Form College, also founded Close to Home Productions, the production company behind Identities.

Alongside this, Identities director Maya Shimmin now serves as Co-Artistic Director of Close to Home alongside Rae, with the success of the show seemingly shaping the future of the company.

The goal of the fundraiser, which can be found here, is to raise £1,000, with the company having raised £900 with 2 days left.

Speaking to Rae about the fundraiser she said: “It’s been amazing, we’ve had so much support, and it’s almost all from people who have watched the show.”

“We’ve had so many lovely messages, and we’ve had a lot of people from the community who have wanted to book us.”

In the original production of the play, Rae worked closely with Prevent Breast Cancer UK – with Identities blending a mixed tone of drama and comedy with informative content that teaches women about breast cancer.

In this second run, the Warrington creative looks to bring the story to communities to aid in education around the disease, as well as bringing theatre to communities that are underrepresented.

“In this run, we are valuing the community value as high as the artistic side of the show.

“We will be going into communities and catering to them.”

Ultimately, Rae spoke with fondness of the last run – and the huge community support the play has received since.

“It’s just so important, I’m very proud of it.”
