One of the most difficult things in fringe theatre is… trust. Trust that you will get value for the money that you pay that unknown writer, with an unknown story; because it doesn’t matter how good the actors and the director are (or not!), text is everything.
I remember shivering on multiple occasions, in small fringe theatre venues. When I wasn’t asleep, or playing Candy Crush Saga in my bag. And leaving, wondering: “Why would this person expose that underdevelopped text to an audience?”
Well, I don’t know. Maybe the text was not underdevelopped or not nice, maybe that was just me, being an opinionated twat.
I believe in my script. And I believe in the team that is so carefully putting it together into a fantastic show, that will have you laugh and cry and question yourselves. We have therefore decided to publish a copy and it is available for a fiver here, on Lulu, or included in the premium ticket at The Bread and Roses, half price.
Happy reading and see you in September!
