Smashing Mirrors Theatre

Smashing Mirrors Theatre was established in 2017 by Elizabeth Godber to produce new musicals and issue-based theatre in East Yorkshire. Since then, the company has gone on to do two national tours with their dementia-awareness musical "Three Emos", run a sell-out musical about Hollywood starlet Dorothy Mackaill at Hull New Theatre, perform a dementia awareness play to school children across East Yorkshire with "The Memory Project" supported by Dementia Friendly East Riding and perform a sell-out Christmas show at Hull City Hall.  Due to the current pandemic crisis, we have lost a large amount of exciting work that we had planned for 2020. Throughout lockdown we have continued to make live streamed work which we have always made available for free through our “Restless Verse” poetry film series.  We have, as a company, always committed to paying our actors at least a nominal fee for their work. However, as COVID continues to impact on the arts, from large scale national organisations to small local companies like us, we are beginning to recognise how it may be some time before we are back in theatres and able to bid for project funding and grants, especially as we are so small. We are running this Go Fund Me to support ourselves to continue to create “Restless Verse” content in the coming months that we can offer to our loyal followers for free whilst also making sure our actors are not out of pocket. We would not normally want to turn to the public in this way, having previously been supported by Arts Council England and Hull City Council amongst others, but at the moment, without a some crowdfunding we simply cannot continue to create digital content. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and we really hope we can be back with pieces of theatre both on and offline to entertain you very soon. Elizabeth and the Smashing Mirrors Team
