Sadly, I have to report we shall not be back at Ironworks as they have now taken regular stand-up on all Sat nights and based the shows viability on covid hit reduced attendance figures at Xmas which means that the venue isn't workable for us. (More detail on the video) plus we no longer have the TV show as it's not financially viable to make a series 5. So we're going back to basics, to coin an old phrase and the restoration of the regular, full cast live shows, this time returning to the Funky Fish Club on the seafront. It's been frustrating not to be doing shows at this particular time what with the news as it is, but we simply haven't had the wherewithall to mount the shows thanks in part to the massive hit we took at Christmas from the omicron variant.
Thank you all so much for your incredible support so far, we wouldn't be here without it but we're not out of the woods yet, as we played to 70% fewer people for the Christmas run (fewer shows etc) than the years preceding covid, or BC as we like to call it. The situation remains precarious and our (indeed my own) future is still in doubt .
The Treason Show in essence, is at its best as a full-cast, 4 hand live show, performed on a regular basis throughout the year to then enable us to create the 'best of' review of the year at Christmas. So to get through to that point, I'm afraid we have to go back to crowdfunding to underpin these shows for the spring edition; May festival; Summer edition; and autumn shows to enable the show to survive the year to be in a position to create the Christmas Special at the end of 2022. To this end, much as I am loathe to do so, I am once again having to rely on crowdfunding to survive. So, please, if you can, share/donate to our fundraiser so we can underpin the upcoming shows then please do so if you can. Thanks again for all the support thus far, we wouldn't be here without you and I hope together, we can keep the Treason Show alive as some sort of recovery kicks in.
