New stretch target

Thanks so much to everyone who helped us reach our initial target. We estimate our total budget will be £9000. If we can cover half that through donations it would be a fantastic boost to morale and would free up some funds for extra marketting and publicity.

Project aim

The aim of this project is to cover part of the budget to take "Mistaken: A Quartet of Plays for One Actor" to Edinburgh.

About the project

Mistaken is a one-man show starring William McGeough, written and directed by Nick Myles. It explores sexuality, gender, and modern relationships, from the murky waters of male bonding to small town homophobia, and with secrets ranging from the daily torment of depression to the shadowy borders of sexual consent. The show is a funny, moving, and above all truthful look at how easy it is for ordinary people to go off the rails. The characters are over-enthusiastic footie fan Lee, nervous northerner Edgar, angry salesman Peter, and suicidal life coach Natasha.

After sold-out performances at the Etcetera Theatre last year, we're taking Mistaken to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August, with the aim of exposing the show to a wider audience and attracting some industry attention.

We're performing at C Venues Nova in the heart of Edinburgh, for the whole of the festival (5-31 August).

We estimate the total budget at around £9000, and are hoping to cover 20% of that through crowdfunding.

Things we need to buy include:

£2 - a bottle of lager (re-used for each show)

£10 - 26 cans of coca cola (1 per show)

£24 - the cost of a two-hour rehearsal space

£35 - costumes/jewellery

£60 - props

£75 - projector screen

£86 - 2 return train tickets London-Edinburgh

£115 - posters/flyers

£170 - venue hire for London preview

£230 - projector

£400 - Fringe Festival registration fee

£2000 - accomodation

£3725 - venue hire

All donations very gratefully received. Remember to let us know your Twitter so we can thank you publicly.
