Nelly Weston's new writing piece Me Myself, Myself, Myself, Myself is hoping to perform at Edinburgh Fringe this Summer and we are asking for your support to get us there! After a challenging year with COVID-19 we are even more determined to share this show which we've all worked so hard towards.
She is awake at 4am. Again. She’s not sad... She's just awake. 4am. What better time to distract yourself from feeling... anything at all? ...and she’s got four more versions of herself to help her do just that.
‘Me, Myself, Myself, Myself, Myself’ follows our protagonist ‘She’, and a vibrant ensemble of her own thoughts as they seek light-hearted, playful ways to distract from the depths of their messy, tired mind. A tale of loneliness, isolation and self-reflection. Sometimes, you need a little time with just you... yourself, yourself, yourself and yourself.
We hope you enjoyed our messy trailer! It was lots of fun to make. A special thank you to Mary McHarg for editing.
This is the second part of our Crowdfunder journey - having already raised £430.
On Friday 14th and Saturday 15th May we will be hosting a scratch online performance of Me Myself which would love you to come too. (Follow our instagram memyself_fringe for more details.
Why do we need your help?
After previously launching a crowdfunder in February 2020, we reached half our target (see evidence below) but we're not quite there yet!
We have ambitious artistic plans to get this show up to Edinburgh Fringe. Getting the production from page to stage always requires incredible support from students and community alike. Public donations are a crucial part of this process. Whether you're an audience member coming up support us at Fringe or even just sharing your interest, you are an integral part of our journey! We really appreciate your help, however big or small.
For more updates on our process in the run-up to Fringe over the next 6 months follow us on social media!
Where will your money go?
Your kind donations will benefit every aspect of the production from start to finish. This includes venue hire, costumes, props and publicity, which are all essential to ensure that show can be as brilliant as possible! In addition to this Crowdfunder, we will be hosting a series of events to raise money for the show. This includes our Self Care PJ Party next month, raffles, a sponsored silence and lots more! To maintain complete transparency, here is a breakdown of our projected income and expenditure for the show:
