Building on the critical and audience success of our new, unique show, 'The London Literary Pub Crawl with Dickens and Woolf (Deceased)' we want to create and write a whole new Performance Tour for London, using our signature combination of actors and an original script by the award-winning writer, Nick Hennegan.
Part guided tour, part street theatre and part interacive performance, our original Literary Pub Crawl has attracted an award from The Society of London Theatre's Stage One Bursary and was descibed by The Guardian as a "Highly enjoyable, off the beaten track pub tour..."
You can help us research this new tour, write a first draft script and bring together actors to workshop and improvise around that script.
We can then bring to life once again some of the unique characters, writers, artists, pubs and newpapers that made Fleet Street the most famous literary street in the world! From Samuel Johnson to Rupert Murdoch.
If you run a business, this project represents a unique way to reach a savvy, literate young metropolitan audience and we are offering gifts based around sponsorship of what is going to become a high-profile, must-see event in the nation's capital. The money raised will be used to fund expenses for research and a period of writing time, workshops with actors and admin costs such as website preperation and copying scripts.
Should we raise more than our target we will move to a second draft script, begin to advertise the tour and work on two books we intend publishing next year.
Maverick Theatre is a registered charity, dedicated to increasing access to the perfoming arts. It has won acclaim for its work and for attracting new, non-theatre audiences. There are plans to tour our more traditional theatre productions nationally to theatres and schools in 2014.
Every penny you can spare will go to make living art in the capital city and if you would like to know more about Maverick and future projects, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
