The Covid-19 outbreak has had a devastating effect on Illyria's 2020 season, meaning all tours have been cancelled.
This leaves Illyria Theatre Limited, its Company Directors, actors and musical directors in an extremely precarious financial position - perhaps even threatening the future of the company, and the livelihoods of the self-employed talent it hires every year.
We are asking for donations to help support the company and its self-employed talent through this incredibly challenging time.
We propose to share a proportion of the money raised with the actors and musical directors that had already been hired for the 2020 season and who now have to find a way to support themselves and their families through this crisis.
Your support will be an amazing help and will mean that Illyria will be poised to hit the road once again after this crisis has run its course, along with the incredible talent it works with every year.
We'll try to keep you entertained by posting video snippets of some of our recent shows to our YouTube channel.
Thank you, we love you all, stay safe.
NB: Our fundraiser starts with a £1000 target automatically, but we will happily accept more if your collective generosity allows. :)
