THE PLAY - Walk Swiftly and With Purpose by Siofra Dromgoole
We meet four sixteen/ seventeen year old girls, as they egg each other on to ever more provocative behaviour. Until now they've lived largely in their imagination - suddenly real life interstects, and this play looks to their joy, disillusionment and how their friendship bears the brunt. Lana, Misha, Robbie and Eve talk and think about what it is to grow up in the twenty- first century, reflecting on themselves, their friendship and the politics of their day.
WHO WE ARE - Three Sisters (Yes! Literally! - we are a theatre company in its very early infancy - founded by Siofra, Grainne and Cara Dromgoole).
Director: Imy Wyatt Corner
Assistant Director: Cara Dromgoole
Producer: Tabitha Piggott
WHY WE NEED YOU:
We feel guilty - we have probably approached you before and we may end up approaching you again (most likely). It's also always so strange asking for money like this knowing that there may be better things for you to be donating your money to. So we want to promise you that we wouldn't be making another gofundme unless we truly cared about the production.
WHY DO WE CARE ABOUT THIS PRODUCTION:
We care about this production because it reflects what we're about - it's a playful yet sincere piece of new writing. It's an important exploration of a difficult age, of sex, bodies and friendship.
In order to take this show to the Fringe we have a fair few costs to cover. We have a great venue - The Space on The Mile - which costs £1400. We also need to cover travel, accomodation, marketing and set etc. Any change you can spare to help us take Three Sisters' first production to the Fringe will be gleefully appreciated !!
