We are organising a showcasing event at The Crows Nest, Notting Hill in the view to take our production to the stage in 2018.

Kensington and Chelsea Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

We will be showing taster excerpts from a brilliant, unusual, challenging, moving, absurdly funny Double-Bill. ACT 1: New acclaimed play by Richard Franklin - LUCK OF THE DRAW (from unpublished documents from the Front Line in France in 1915 ) ACT 2: The first “surrealist” play by Guillaume Apollinaire - MAMA BECOMES DADA! ( original title “Les Mamelles de Tiresias” Picasso himself persuaded the Author to produce it in Paris in 1917 & it caused a sensation!) The evening will take place at The Crows’ Nest, Crowthorne Road, Notting Hill, on November 9th 2017 - 6.30pm (nearest station: 4 minutes stroll from Latimer Road) The night will include wine, pizza and very rare original crazy avant garde recorded sounds. Also involving local artists to build set and with the help of KIRA ZHIGALINA, local school groups can help with paint work and other artistic creations. We hope this will benefit the community and give local children and artists an artistic platform.

What we'll deliver:

  • Showcase local artistic talent.
  • Showcase the company of young Actors to agents and producers.
  • Provide artistic opportunities for local children.

Why it's a great idea:

The continued cuts to council arts funds means that its almost impossible for GENUINE fringe theatre to exist. Most theatre has turned into corporate businesses which is the complete opposite of what it should be. For us to launch our company in this way is a fantastic idea because it gives us (the company) the ability to perform to an audience with special invitations going out to agents and producers and potential investors for our future projects. This funding is essential for our future development as a company to get us started and exposed to the general public. This project also benefits the local community. We hope that bringing an audience to The Crows Nest (an off the map artistic hive) helps build the venues publicity to London. We will be Interacting with local school children effected by The Grenfell Tower tragedy giving them an opportunity to meet and paint with the local artists we'll have creating the set.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buy food and drinks for the event
  • Buy materials for the set
  • Create the set
  • Hire Lighting and Sound Equipment

We have chosen the dates of this project so it can also be seen as a memorial to the final days of The Battle Of The Somme in November 1916. Act 1 of the showcase is a World War 1 tribute based on Letters written on the front line in France. It is a very touching story and sparks conversation between the audience after the show about the ethics of war and the importance of community spirit. The actors during this piece break character and discuss ISIS and current terrorism themselves. We would also like to mention that any profits made by this event, 50% of which will be donated to a Grenfell Tower fundraiser. We are in discussion with KEVIN MARTIN from The Crows Nest who is advising us and helping us make this project the best it can be for all parties involved.
