Eavesdrop Theatre is dedicated to "listening to current issues and combatting them through theatre" and 'Whispers of the Week' is designed to put both alternative theatre, and topical issues on the doorstep of young people.
Following a successful self-funded research and development period we have combined Shakespeare and movement to bring a new dimension to the latest headlines in a hot-off-the press, time sensitive production freshly devised in the week prior to performance.
Performances are set to be held in libraries and local community buildings around London with a proportion of any profit going to a charity that deals with a key issue tackled in the paticular production or in some cases the local Mayor's charity.
We are seeking funding to:
Ensure that artists taking part in the project will be paid for their talent and expertise
Cover any rehearsal space that we aren't able to get for free/reduced price
Buy materials needed to create props
Purchase Eavesdrop Banners to frame performance areas
Print promotional materials required
Thank you for taking the time to read about our project - any support will be greatly appreciated.
