We are thrilled to have teamed up with writer Angela Buckingham for this project. We’ve attracted an awesome team with director Susie Dee at the helm and actors Carolyn Bock, Helen Hopkins, Lee Mason, Chi Nyugen, Sahil Saluja on board. Sound designer Ian Moorhead is poised to design the sound bath…
Now we just need YOU!
Your help now will mean we can polish the script through workshops so that it is stage ready by the end of the year.
Supporting the Arts is crucial at this time when so much of our income and performance opportunity has either gone or been postponed due to COVID-19.
Your support will help us to fill some of the gaps and support our creative team. We might not be able to get back into the theatres just yet, but we can be proactive during this time and plan for future possibilities. This gives us hope, a sense of purpose and keeps our creativity flowing!
Funds raised on this platform will be used to support our creative team as part of a broader campaign through Arts Funding platforms. The development time we seek funding for will be a think tank- a dedicated time to explore and discover the characters, create a sonic world and imagine the aesthetic of this new work.
