The Bread & Roses Theatre's 'dirty butterfly'

Help fund The Bread & Roses Theatre's in-house production of 'dirty butterfly' by award-winning writer debbie tucker green.

We did it!

On 30th Apr 2017 we successfully raised £250 of £250 target with 10 supporters in 56 days

New stretch target

If the funding exceeds our minimum target it would be used to further top up these budgets as well as the fees for the creatives and towards covering the theatre's production expenses.

A short summary of our project

Following 5 star reviewed productions of 'Miss Julie' in 2015 and 'Low Level Panic' in 2016, this year The Bread & Roses Theatre is putting on a revival of the debut play of Olivier-Award-winning playwright and BAFTA-Award-winning screenwriter debbie tucker green. Amelia and Jason are drawn into the dark and compelling world of their mutual neighbour Jo who is the victim of nightly domestic violence. As Jason is increasingly addicted to eaves-dropping on Jo's abuse, Amelia's frustration with Jo's predicament develops. A play concerned with voyeurism, power and guilt.

Our Story

Founded in 2012 the BRTC has since been presenting regular new writing night The Platform in what was initially nothing more than the upstairs function room at the Bread & Roses pub. After a lot of hard work and financial support from the pub, The Bread & Roses Theatre was eventually officially launched in November 2014. Since the launch the theatre has immediately been able to build up a busy and diverse programme, which is growing from strength to strength. The theatre has also been a recipient of the ICWP 50/50 Applause Award two years in a row. We are now thrilled to be presenting our third in-house production in our very own theatre.

Where will the money go?

We are mainly funding the project from the theatre's own profits. All creatives are already guaranteed a fee and direct share of money made from ticket sales (without deduction of expenses) and we have a very small budget for marketing and design of the production. If we hit our minimum target the money will be used towards increasing the budget we have available to spend on the marketing and design, to make it the best production possible. If the funding exceeds our minimum target it would be used to further top up these budgets as well as the fees for the creatives and towards covering the theatre's production expenses. We will be sharing at least weekly updates on the progress of our production and you can also follow details on our website and social media.
