Glaswegian alternative drag queen Miss Diagnosis spends her days in preparation for the big show, endlessly going through a dress rehearsal in the confines of her studio flat. Do strangers visit in the night, while she sleeps, as she says? Unable to leave the confines of her tiny flat, she fantasies about a sparkling, brilliant life that they have stolen from her. Family, friends and siblings are all suspects…
Just an Act are presenting & 39;In Capacity House& 39; at the Regency Tavern in Brighton over May as part of the Brighton Fringe. This is a follow up show to our show & 39;A Chandelier in my Kitchenette& 39; at last year& 39;s fringe.
Over the next 30 days we will keep you up to speed with how rehearsals are going. Not only that, but we will let you know how the opening night went and how the first two week of the show have gone. The show is running for 3 weeks.
We urgently need to raise £500 to cover 50% of the production costs of this one man show.
How can it cost so much to put on a one man show?
We& 39;ve tried to keep costs to a minimum but some costs such as Fringe registration are fixed.
Here is a breakdown of how the costs work out for & 39;In Capacity House& 39; -
Marketing and printing - £200
Payment for a stage manager/technician @ £50 a night (plus dress/tech rehearsal) - £500
Early bird registration with the Brighton Fringe - £156
Insurance - £50
Costume and make-up - £50
Transport, props, set elements - £50
Grand total - £1,006
The show is running over 3 weeks on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 16th, 17th and 18th of May at 7.30pm.
