Developed from Mountview Catalyst Festival, the first professional performance of The Bandaged Woman by William Proudler at The Old Red Lion

by Theatre 63 in London, Greater London, United Kingdom

Hello everyone!

Thank you so much for clicking on our Crowdfunding page for bringing the first ever professional production of The Bandaged Woman to life!

Theatre63 is excited to bring their second show to the London fringe and in order to do this, we need your help as we come out of a difficult time for the industry. Many of us are recent drama school graduates and for some it marks their professional debut in theatre. The money raised will go towards paying our 3 wonderful actors. Not only that, the £2,000 we are raising will also be used on marketing and PR of the production, which gives more publicity and exposure of the emerging creative teams to the theatre industry. This will lead to more opportunities and work in the future for the team, which is crucial to these emerging artists in the era of post pandemic. 

Thank you for your generous support and making the dream of the creative teams come true! 

Performances run from 24th November to 4th December. Book your tickets online here.

Or to support us more, get a ticket to the performance free of your choice through the reward option!*


About the play:

Written by William Proudler, Directed by Ruby Etches, Produced by Jing Bi

“Three plays, all failures, all embarrassments...

They don’t like me because they know who my father is, but they don’t like him anymore, so maybe they’ll give me another chance. I just have to find out what to feed them, what will set the stage on fire.”

Hera’s running on the fumes of her father’s fading career. After a string of her own theatrical failures, she’s set on making her own one woman play. She wants to make a name for herself and leave her old image behind. But a crowd gathers outside her family’s estate. They have other ideas of what she should do with her privilege. 

She arrives home, to sell her family's estate, and finds her Father won’t leave his office. All while the city inhabitants bang on the gates outside. But Hera’s not too worried. She knows what the true focus is. To write the next hit one woman play and finally gain her father’s acceptance. As the crowd gets closer and closer, she tries to uncover how to make her next play a sell out.

“That’s all you want, isn’t it, for everyone to know you are a good person who makes good things, one of those people who burns so bright no one can help but look?”
