Venezuelan actress Elba Escobar in London shows to aid charity

Venezuelan actress Elba Escobar is bringing her highly-acclaimed one-woman comedy show to the Chelsea Theatre in Kings Road, London, on February 17 and 18 to raise money for the UK-based Venezuelan children's charity CHAMOS.

The play is a monologue in Spanish on the ups and downs of married life from a Venezuelan woman's perspective and is teasingly entitled "Mi Marido es un Cornudo" ("My Husband is a Cuckold").

This is a rare opportunity to see one of Venezuela's most popular and engaging actresses performing in the UK.
With only 110 seats for each performance you should book early to avoid disappointment.
Escobar has appeared in countless Venezuelan movies and soap operas over the years, including knockabout comedies such as "Cóctel de Camarones, en el Día de la Secretaria" and hard-hitting black comedies like "Secuestro Express". 
The event is being organized by CHAMOS, a not-for-profit UK charity that aims to improve the living standards of the most deprived children in Venezuela, whether living in urban or rural areas, or in indigenous communities.

CHAMOS has no political or religious affiliation, and all funds raised through volunteer work are used to financially support NGO’s working in Venezuela.

Tickets are priced £30 and are on sale now. You can pay by either: 1) Electronic tranference to HSBC Bank, Sort Code 40-07-30 Account No. 11891677 CHAMOS, Reference: "Mi Marido es un Cornudo"; Or 2) Send a cheque payable to CHAMOS c/o 19 Earls Terrace, London, W8 6LP.

One of the Venezuelan charities supported by CHAMOS is the Hogar Santa Ana in Maracaibo, which feeds over 150 children every day. CHAMOS were able recently to provide colourful new tables and chairs for the dining area, which can be seen in this short video highlighting the fantastic work being done at Hogar Santa Ana:
