We are Oddbodies, an award winning small scale production company based on Dartmoor in Devon. (www.oddbodies.com)
LEAR is our first theatre show in a while and we are thrilled to be getting it in front of audiences at last.
First stop will be BRIGHTON, one of the country's leading Fringe Theatre Festivals, and we need your support to help us get it there.
The show is new. Feedback from preview audiences at the end of last year was overwhelmingly positive and we are very excited to have the opportunity to get it seen by a wider audience, hopefully attract press and get along venue promoters who can help us to tour it far and wide.
We've not received any public funding to develop this project and have had to apply again for support from ACE to help tour the show. This means we are currently having to find significant upfront costs to make it all happen right now.
Our aim is to raise £750. This will go towards registration fees, venue costs and publicity and marketing.
We have some wonderful rewards on offer for people wanting to support us. Please take a look...
