So, for us, this is big exciting news.
After running Fable at Summerhall over August, we have been invited out to New York. We have an off-Broadway transfer to the Soho Playhouse from the 20th-31st October. We're working with Greenwich Theatre in London as producing partners for our stateside debut.
We have never taken work to New York before. This is a great chance for us to perform Fable in the States. It's also a good time for us to try and meet and chat to as many industry folks as we can. We want to start conversations and relationships which we can carry on in to the future. It's great to be able to do this on the ground with a show in the city.
We have worked with such brilliant people over these last years - and now we get to take their work to a new audience and a new bunch of industry. Jim (composer) and Veronica (perfomer) will be touring the Scottish Highlands with Fable as well - so Henry Bird and Calire Curtis Ward are taking up the reigns in The Big Apple.
And we'd like to ask for your help - we want to meet people. Whether that's folks that will put us up whilst we're there, folks that will come see the show, folks that we can have a beer with, folks who work in the arts who we could chat with...we'd like to meet them all!
We're also raising some money here - this is quite simply to afford to spend the time there. We're not planning anything fancy - just your basic living costs. We want to use our time wisely, meet as many industry as we can and start to lay some foundation for the future. So, for us, this is a real opportunity to make sure we can be in the city and have those face to face conversations. If you're able to help us do that, we'd be oh so grateful.
Fable plays as part of this season.
Thanks for reading and any sharing, helping or support for a next step in a big adventure.
