JOLLY a New Show with Songs

£1,270 of £7,000 goal

Raised by 39 people in 10 months
Thank you and welcome. I am making a New Show to open in March 2018 that will include fragments of my story of the past few years and live performance, songs to be recorded  in January.

It's been a long longlonglonglonglonglong time.

Some thought I was at the point of no return.

And here we are. The return.

A bit battered but more than a bit better.

Thanks more than I can say for your contributions so far. Every little helps. 

This is not just a story of ill health. It's  a story of reclusedom and daddydom. A story of closeness and separation, a story of no walls and  thin lines between expert and knowing nothing, losing power but gaining sanity, showcasing years of collected writing, performance ideas, speaking in tongues, gypsy violins and  frothy melodies.  The show will be directed by the unique and excellent Jack Klaff. The funds, needed from December onwards, are to cover the fees and production costs incurred. Without your help this show cannot happen and we thank you for your support. 

I have recently been diagnosed with Spino Cerebellar Ataxia a degenerative neurological condition for which there is currently no cure. I want  this show to happen soon. For obvious reasons. 

10% of any funds after recoupment of production costs will go to movement-based Ataxia research.

I'd better make this show happen soon. ...A new show by Jonathan Stone with music, about maintaining balance, acumen whilst adapting to a diagnosis of an incurable degenerative disease.
if you missed it in March catch it while you can - 20 minutes longer with more songs. At the moment I’m a 'mild' case but the prognosis is unknown – it may get bad next year or in 25 so
Jack Klaff has been an outside eye, sounding board, friend and help in making this happen.
In January 2018 I went to Köln in Germany to work on music for the show with the kind and excellent Ekki Maas who is donated his expertise and some studio time in exchange for a meal for his lovely family. I will be performing some of this music and there will be recordings for sale.
In March 2018 I performed a rough 45 minute version
I will be performing the developing Show for 3 nights, 23-25 May 2018 at the October Gallery. Old Gloucester Street W1.
Tickets £10 on the night, £3 from each ticket sold will
go to Ataxia research.
If you bring 2 paying guests you will get in for free.
There is no advance booking - just turn up on the night!
