We are a Brighton-based company and we're taking our new show "The Secret Voice of Hollywood" to the Edinburgh Fringe this year.
Gin Palace Productions specialises in two types of performance: Shakespeare (which we perform in the open at a local venue during the summer) and new writing (which tends to have a bias towards well know figures from the world of musicals and theatre).
"The Secret Voice of Hollywood" is our second new writing piece and has already been performed in the Brighton area and we really want it go further afield. It has long been a dream of ours to take one of our shows to the Edinburgh Fringe and this year will be even more special as it's the 70th anniversary of the Fringe! And this year, we're making it a reality!
Funding for such a venture can be notoriously tricky but we're hoping that those of you who have been with us since we set up Gin Palace Productions and have seen and enjoyed our shows (and even those of you who have only heard about us but would like to see us perform!) will be happy to help us get there.
There are only two of us that actually perform in the show but there's so much more going on in the background that's involved in getting us to Edinburgh - we need a crew for the show to help us with lighting, sound, backstage, etc; we'll have travel costs; admin and registration costs; and we need to pay for the venue and the accomodation that we've luckily managed to secure. We'd be grateful for anything you give us to help us fulfil our dream!
