For any extra money raised we will be looking to use the money to pay for the lighting and sound requirements that are needed. We also need to pay for the services of some very nice people to stage manage, production manage and make the costumes. It would be lovely to get the help to make sure that this can happen. Thank you for all your donations.

Project aim

A Play for Bristol about Bristol. The Engineer’s Corset is a new play about Brunel to celebrate 150yrs of the Clifton Suspension Bridge. We need £2000 to help make this happen.

About the project

We are asking for donations to contribute to the cost of making the Costumes and Set for the production.

The play is to be performed at the Redgrave Theatre in Bristol from the 5th to 8th August 2015. It is being performed solely by the community of Bristol.

The play tells of the true life story of Isambard Kingdom Brunel as he struggles to breathe after swallowing a coin. With imaginative directing and creative movement from Chantry Dance Company we are embarking on an exciting adventure to create this production. Professional theatre makers and have been working with the community cast to give them a theatrical experience whilst learning about local history.

We are asking for £2000 to fund the Production costs to make sure that the project can happen. This will help to provide the set, costumes and props.

This will be a brilliant show and will celebrate Brunel in Bristol, giving the local community and visitors to the city the chance to connect with a genius.
