Who are you?
We are Bloody Nora Theatre, we create work that is grounded in human experience and told through a uniquely female voice. Driven by the murky, the mucky and the messy, we invite our audience into unusual spaces, telling stories that create an intimate relationship between performer and spectator, inspiring conversations which extend beyond the event.
We will be taking our new show Treehouse to the Brighton Fringe in May and need all of your help to do so.
Treehouse is a piece of original writing which explores the relationship between two sisters estranged after thier parents death. Their coming together prompts the confrontation of their shared history which in turn reveals a dark ulterior motive behind their meeting. Told through a series of intense and intimate conversations, Treehouse comments on the lives women are often expected to lead in conflict with those that they choose.
That's alot of money!
Our budget of £1000 will cover our application fee, travel and accomodation costs. The Brighton Fringe is in no way an inexpensive endeavour and thus far the show has been self funded. Your donationations would allow us to expand our audience and develop our company. Our target is £1000, however any excess will enable us to tour Treehouse in the summer following the Brighton Fringe.
Why should I care?
68% of theatre goers are women, yet the vast majority of plays are centred around male characters. To combat this underepresentation the effort has been focussed on showing strong and fierce women. However, we are rarely given the opportunity to see complex, flawed women on stage. Women who are not a plot point, women who we recognise, who we see reflected in our mothers, our best friends, our colleagues, ourselves.
Their is a clear gender imbalance in theatre and this needs to change. Bloody Nora was created to be a part of this change.
If donating is beyond your means, please don't worry. We would be grateful if instead you would share our campaign and increase the publicity of our event. We thank you for your ongoing support and hope to see you all at the Laughing Dog Cafe on the 9th and 10th of May at 7:30pm.
