We took in The Lowry, Square Chapel, Lantern Theatre, Oldham Coliseum, The Kings Arms, Pavilion Arts Centre and Paupers Pit as part of the Buxton Fringe Festival and would like to thank all the venues for all their help and support.
Also a massive congratulations to all the cast and crew on two great shows!
An announcement
Over the next five months we will be going dark. The team are going to concentrate on getting funds together to support our ongoing work. We will be coming back in January with an announcement of the upcoming year this will include details of two new shows (to be chosen from our script call) and our other activities including workshops, masterclasses, Perspectives, Ignition and Chaotic Combinations. Some castings and creative calls will come out in December so do watch out for these.
We will be putting out a crowd funding bid in the next few months - if you can help support us any funds will be greatly received. More information will be out soon on this.
