On Wednesday I went to see the West End transfer of Morgan Lloyd Malcolm’s Emilia.A fierce new play, it tells the forgotten story of Emilia Bassano, a trailblazing young woman who wanted her voice to be heard.Since walking out of the theatre, I’ve not been able to stop thinking about how this show NEEDS to be seen by as many people as possible - but especially young women.So I’m launching this crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to send as many young women as possible.

Just a quick message to update all of you wonderful people who have donated to this campaign to send young women to see the brilliant Emilia in the West End.

To date, we’ve had 91 donations totalling over £2300, which will allow us to take over 90 young women on 15th April.

The fundraiser is still open and I’m getting several messages a day asking for tickets. So if I can ask another favour and ask you to share this campaign asking your friends and family to help out then I’d be massively grateful.

Again, thank you so much to everyone that has supported this initiative. I truly believe this will have a profound effect on these young women’s lives.

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated. To be honest when I first set this up I wasn’t sure if we’d get a single donation, let alone over £1600! So thank you, thank you, thank you.

I’ve spoken with producer Kate Pakenham who has offered us a very good rate for tickets to a performance later this month, and I am now talking to organisations who support young women to ensure the tickets go to those who will truly benefit.

Once I’ve worked out the allocation I’ll withdraw the money from this campaign and use it to pay for the tickets. All donations will go to tickets for young women.

In a world that seems less than kind most of the time it has been truly heartening to witness so many acts of kindness.

I know that I speak on behalf of everyone in the production when I say I’m sincerely grateful to everyone who has got behind this initiative.

Very best
