Staging No Cure For Love

I've written a play!

No Cure For Love is due to be staged on the 12th, 13th and 14th August. 

Inspired by the music of Leonard Cohen, this piece examines the truth behind love songs. Can love ever be like that? Would we want it to be? Does love age with us or do we always fall like teenagers?

Join musicians Scott and Rose backstage at the Broadstairs Folk Festival as they try to discover if there is - in fact - a cure for love. 

What I am most proud of is this shows older people in a romantic - even sexy - light. We don't lose our humanity as we age so why should we lose those things that make us most human? But this is so rarely depicted in drama. 

I want to pay my actors, crew and theatre properly. I will not be taking a penny from this Go Fund Me (and any ticket sales will go towards my next project). But I'm incredibly proud of the work I have done so far and really want to stage this play. But I'm broke and don't have rich patrons to back me - I have you wonderful lot. 

So please help me to achieve my goal and allow myself - if even for a day or two - to be a playwright. It means the world.
