1,000 Suns is a new folk rock musical by Joe Eason, Matthew Taylor & Rachel Phillips, with a book by Joe Eason & Hussnain Khalid and directed by Jamie Sansom. The show is set in an alternate future where the American survivors of a nuclear war shelter in a huge crater from the fallout that remains in the world above. A group of young people struggle with their own identities, the harshness of their world and the ignorant authority of their elders. A story of wanderlust, love, fear, hope and pioneers 1,000 Suns: An American Afterlife is an emotional journey and a demonstration of young and inventive musical theatre at it& 39;s best.
Featuring a small cast of five strong up and coming performers and a small live band, VF Theatre are taking this beautiful new show to Edinburgh Fringe Festival and will be performing at the Spaces on Northbridge from the 6th - 11th of August.
However taking a show to Fringe is expensive and the company need your help to make it happen as well as to give them a chance to perform the show in its full length in their home town of High Wycombe for one night before they make the trip to Edinburgh. The show holds great career and experience potential for all those involved not to mention the emotional attachment and love felt for this piece of theatre by those who are a part of it.
While we are able to pay for our own accommodation, we find ourselves struggling to cover the costs of performing in such a prominent venue and the festival& 39;s registration fees, not to mention travel and production costs. This is why we need your help, any amount helps and we will do our best to reward you!
