Hello, thank you for taking the time to read my story. I am a professional actor who writes and produces my own work. Due to the coronavirus I have lost a considerable amount of work and income. Many of my future projects were cancelled and unfortunately due to a second wave becoming a reality, many theatres look set to become closed permanently this year. Which is devastating for fringe theatres and artists who need these venues to get their work seen. And many freelancers, like myself, rely on ticket sales to make an income for our work. Particularly as ticket sales play a huge part with investing in our future projects, honing skills and career development. I would greatly appreciate any donation today that you can give which will help cover the cost of lost work, earnings, spotlight and equity fees. Thank you and keep safe.
