I’m Linda Wilkinson, I’m a playwright, novelist, scientist, and sometime cabaret artiste and part of the team bringing Ghosts on a Wire to you this autumn at the Union Theatre, Southwark! 

Ghosts on a Wire is my second play about Blackfriars. Set in the 19th century it’s about greed and the destructive nature of industrialisation. It’s a whistle stop-tour through the power of electricity via Mary Shelley and her Monster, Michael Faraday the father of electricity, vibrating pubs that give you sea-sickness on land, and the start of the clean air-movement, by Octavia Hill, the co-founder of the National Trust, who had a rather more interesting life than many know of. A very modern lady indeed! 

With animations and video projections by the amazing Chris Lince, ably aided by artist Adrian Chappell, the whole thing will be brought together under the talented eye of Director Paul K Taylor.

Why do we need the money? 

I want to pay the actors and the creative team properly. It’s as simple as that. The past couple of years have decimated the theatre sector and putting on a show isn’t cheap or easy. This is where your support through the Crowdfund appeal makes a huge difference. 

In the past, lots of productions were only possible due to the good will of individuals, who basically did it for love. This isn’t fair to the professionals who work to bring the magic alive on stage. 

This is your chance to back our crowdfund appeal which alongside a grant from Southwark Council and some further offline fundraising will mean we can all enjoy this show and provide vital paid work for local creatives. Please back what you can and help keep theatre alive. Thank you. 

Ghosts on a Wire will be on at the Union Theatre, Southwark running from September 21st until October 8th.
