In A Nutshell...
Award-nominated theatre company Space Productions need your help to bring a brand new, devised piece of theatre to life this Autumn.
About The Play
We are! And we want to be! And we want us all to be! We don’t want them! We only want us! So come and listen! Because we are what we are! And you must be what we are! So you are not them! Listen to us! This play is our word!
What's a manifesto and what are they for?
We've locked away some of the finest creative minds to explore what a manifesto means to us today.
Following on from the success of our recent devised work, the Roof Garden Players and The Man Who Found His Freedom, Space Productions take on a bold new approach to creating a play.
About Space Productions
The Space is a unique performance venue located on the Isle of Dogs providing for the diverse communities of Tower Hamlets and attracting audiences from all over London. Our focus as a venue centres on creating opportunities for new performers, writers, directors and designers.
Our in-house theatre company Space Productions has staged 22 productions since its creation in 2006. These include The Graduate, Festen, A Doll's House, Vernon God Little and, most recently, Rachael Claye's beautiful new script The Lighthouse - which saw us build a 20 foot lighthouse in the theatre!
The company has to date received six Off-West End nominations, has had several shows funded by Arts Council England, and our work continues to generate an overwhelmingly positive response from audiences and critics.
Manifesto is an exciting new venture for us. After the success of our previous devised work (The Man Who Found His Freedom last October and the Roof Garden Players' residency at the Roof Garden) this is the first time we're devising a show completely from scratch, from the initial idea to the final product. Every member of our company - actors, directors, writers and producers - has a role in creating the final piece, and we're excited to present a piece of new writing unlike anything out there on the London Fringe.
How You Can Help!
Your donations will go directly into bringing the project to life. The £1500 we're hoping to raise will go towards:
- Paying a fee to all artists involved in the project
- Set, costume, props and sound and lighting equipment to fully realise the potential of the script
- Marketing help to spread the word about the show far and wide
- Additional rehearsal space to maximise our time creating the work
Thank you so much for your support!
