Apologies for the radio silence from me. I have been extremely busy with the project and I thought I should let you know what's been going on. Starting with the bad news; Unfortunately we were unsuccessful with our Arts Council Application for funding. We didn't receive any specific feedback on what to improve on so it is literally a case of not being selected by that panel at that time. A little disappointing however I am determined to get the project off the ground and still very much intend to go ahead with our Bunker theatre booking and Research & Development period in May.
So I have been writing to everyone and anyone who may have a connection to the cause and might like to sponsor us or donate. We have had some very positive responses and although we don't have an official sponsor yet I'm very confident we can raise the money to pay the actors, writer and theatre.
As discussions progress about the play itself, I'm getting really excited. I know that it is going to be a very special, unique piece of theatre and I can't wait to get in a space and start creating. Watch this space for videos and updates on the R&D.
Special thanks to everyone who has donated to the project so far and to both Cardiomyopathy UK and The BHF for their coverage and assistance on spreading the word. I look forward to giving you all more updates soon.
